Frank Frazetta, RIP

Illustration legend Frank Frazetta passed on today—no art student of my generation didn’t feel his influence.

From the New York Times:

“Frank Frazetta, an illustrator whose vivid colors and striking brushstrokes conjured up fantastic worlds of musclebound heroes fighting with broad swords and battle axes to defend helpless women from horrible beasts, died on Monday in Fort Myers, Fla. He was 82.”

He was that kind of artist which is all too rare: he could really draw.
