This week saw the sad news of the death of  legendary Fantasy Artist, Frank Frazetta.

I can honestly say that I have never been moved enough by the death of any artist to actaully want to write about, but Frazetta has been one of my biggest inspirations of all time and has formed part of my creative passion since I was quite young.   My heart goes out to his family and I know without doubt that his memory will be alive forever, as no other artist has ever brought so much to the world of fantasy.

I was lucky enough to buy some prints of Frazetta’s work quite a few years ago, which he personally quality checked before sending out.  Even though this is a slightly tenuous link, I feel lucky to have had even this small a level of contact with the original master of Fantasy Art!

Thanks for all that you have done Frank Frazetta, your truly are a legend!

Mike.
