Frank Frazetta Passes Away

Recommended Posts

Frank Frazetta was a giant to me. I owned all of his art albums from the 1970s and let me tell you, they were dog eared. I would pour over them for hours. His work lit my imagination on fire.

When Dread and I reviewed FIRE & ICE on Dread Media (episode 108) we watched the extra documentary, featuring Ralph Bakshi talking about Frazetta. He told a story regarding Frazetta showing up at his studio to check progress on the film. The other artists, illustrators and designers in the office that day were literally, and I mean literally, fainting at the sight of him. He was an absolute rock star to these guys.

I had a grin from ear to ear when I heard that story. It was perfect. He was royalty. a god among men come to earth briefly to bless the work of his mortal worshippers.

R.I.P Frank Frazetta. You were a hero to this mere mortal.
