RIP Frank Frazetta

A thank you is not nearly enough.

Your artwork influenced almost every aspect of my life, from video games to day dreams.

You will be truly missed.

 :'( OMG, when did this happen?  Wow, Frank was such a profound influence of the entire fantasy art genre, it's hard to imagine him as gone.  But his legacy will continue to live in all the artists he inspired, and in the works he shared with the world.  In that sense, he will live on forever.

no kidding that fellow was important.  an immediate example is in the look of some of the chronopia factions.  not saying that was a direct, immediate influence but the look of gritty fantasy owes much to him.

Yes, I think we all can agree he has alot of influence on our world.

Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.

Would Conan have been as big in the 70's without Frazetta's prolific covers?  Would Molly Hatchet be remembered if it weren't for the infamous 'Death Dealer' on the album cover?  Would I love Fire and Ice as much?  I say nay to all three!

At least his death came quickly...a stroke after dinner with his daughters followed by a very short time in the hospital.  Not ideal (death rarely is), but it could have gone worse.
