I was sad to hear fantasy art legend Frank Frazetta passed away today. I remember picking up one of the Death Dealer novels based on the strength of its cover art, the iconic “Death Dealer” painting. I remember little about the novel, but after seeing more and more Frazetta art, I quickly became a fan.
Hell, I even seem to remember basing Dungons & Dragons scenarios around some of his paintings. (Yeah. I was one of those geeks back in the day.)
I’ve been told you know you’re getting old when all of your heroes start to die. Given those who have died the last few years, I guess I’m starting to push it.
Some guys on Twitter have been saying Frazetta’s now painting some kick-ass fantasy paintings for God. I’m not a religious guy, but you know, I like the sound of that.
