Rest In Peace, Frank


Very saddened to hear that the great fantasy artist Frank Frazetta passed away today. I've loved his work since I was a kid & he was such a huge influence on so many others I enjoy as well (Simon Bisley, Glenn Fabry, hello??? Even Joe Linsner names him as his biggest influence) Now I really kick myself I never got a chance to make it up to his museum in the Poconos as I heard he often hung out there before he got so ill, I really had hoped that some day I would have gotten a chance to meet him.

At least I did get to see the huge retrospective at the Alexander Gallery in NYC back in the early 90s and have a signed print of his ("Golden Girl"), plus my Randy Bowen death dealer statue. Gawd what a huge influence he had on so many...
