Like most fantasy art lovers, I'm a HUGE fan of Frank Frazetta.  To me he is the King of fantasy art.  No one did it like Frank Frazetta before or after!

He showed people how fantasy art should be done.  The heroes should be super cool muscular beasts.  The monsters should be gigantic and horrible.  And the ladies, well.....the ladies were voluptuous and plus some....exciting times!

He captured the ultimate sense of adventure and excitement in his paintings.  He was a living legend.  His work will countiue to inspire and help generations for years and years to create better art.  Frank Frazetta is responcible for lighting the art fire inside of me and millions of artists like me.

Long live the King's Art!
