As you’re probably now aware, the world lost a terrific artist yesterday with the passing of Frank Frazetta. A recent series of strokes couldn’t prevent Frank from producing incredible pieces of artwork – as he amazingly taught himself to paint with his left hand – but one final stroke yesterday was unfortunately more than his body could take. Frank specialized in fantasy and science fiction paintings, and you’ve undoubtedly seen some of his work, like maybe some of his awesome Conan stuff. I actually used to have his “Deathdealer” painting hanging on my wall when I first moved to New York.
I suppose there’s some solace in knowing that even though Frank isn’t with us anymore, his paintings will stand the test of time. You can check out some amazing works from a truly incredible artist after the jump. R.I.P.
