RIP Frank Frazetta (1928-2010)

   
I only read about this today in the Sydney Morning Herald - their source was the Los Angeles Times obituary.
I always look at the obituaries and mostly they're boring, but once in a while somebody interesting dies. Frazetta is one of those. You just need to hear the name and a dozen images will be conjured in your mind. One of them might be a Conan-esque muscleman grappling with a giant boa constrictor, another will be a statuesque Amazon frolicking with her pet tigers, or pumas.
So, this is one obituary I clipped.
Rest In Peace, Frank Frazetta.
Your art kicked ass.
You are now immortal.

I read about this last week (a good place to keep up with stuff like this is http://www.thesuperficial.com/) ...

A truly great artist, sadly missed.
