One of the great painters of our time has passed away today. He was 82.
Frazetta was a comics artist who became a painter and did a lot of iconic covers for Warren Magazines and book publishers. Many of his paintings are to comics fans what a great art masters were to art. He was able to lend a power to his paintings that few have ever come close to. I remember pouring over books that collected his paintings as a kid. I had this one as a poster on my wall for many years in my teens and early 20s.
He died of a stroke. But he had one several years ago that robbed him of his ability to paint anymore. His art will live on.
