Frank Frazetta, American Illustrator, painter and comic book artist, passed away on May 10th, 2010 at the age of 82.

Personally, I am deeply saddened. Although Frank was advanced in years, his work was so powerful, so vibrant that, somehow, I felt that the energy in his work reflected a life that simply could not be extinguished. Unfortunately for all who knew and admired his work, Frank succumbed to a stroke and the fantastic worlds, women and visions of Frazetta have found their limit.

To me, Franks' work, especially the work that he did on the covers of Robert E. Howard's, “Conan, the Barbarian” series of books, profoundly influenced the way I viewed art and the way that I came to explore the the worlds of sword and sorcery, science fiction and fantasy. When I picked up a Conan paperback, with a Frazetta cover, I would be just as thrilled viewing the cover as I would be reading Howard's epic prose. Yet, Franks' Conan would be so powerful that it was a Frazetta Conan that I would imagine battling against, “by Crom” , unimaginable odds.

Frank Frazetta will be keenly missed and the work he has left behind will be treasured all the more.

I can't even imagine a contemporary popular artist who has not been influenced, in some fashion, by the work of this "modern day master". His work is, simply, spectacular.
