One of the first posters I ever bought was a Frazetta:

Somewhere in a book crate, I have the John Carter of Mars paperback set with his covers.

I bet I've got a book or two around with his artwork on it.

Can't say I'd thought of Frank recently. I like a lot of his work, though. He and Bernie Wrightson made a good team, as well.

So long, Mr. Frazetta.

He will be missed

I had the opportunity to see the originals of his work several years ago, the colors and details were beyond imagination.

This is the title of my favorite animation film using his work. Thanks so much for the memorial posting!

I've got that one on VHS, but not on DVD yet. I'll have to look for it.

Conan book covers

My high school days sneaking Conan books into study hall and staring at the covers almost trying to get inside the picture.

On this day I shall mourn.

One of the most influential artists of any genre

by terry.floyd In reply to Frank Frazetta, 1928-2010

I remember seeing Frazetta's paintings on comic books when I was in middle school, then joining the SF Book Club and getting the entire John Carter of Barsoom series in hardcover with Frazetta's amazing covers. His style was distinctive and original, though now so many younger artists have learned from his work that you see a lot of paintings these days in his style. Props to Boris Vallejo, who credits his painstaking efforts to mimic Frazetta's style with teaching him how to paint.
