FRANK FRAZETTA. R.I.P.


Truley a huge inspiration in my life...

This week we lost a giant in the industry with the passing of Frank Frazetta. His dynamic paintings and illustrations defined genre fiction and inspired generations of artists that followed him. He was a master of his craft and worked in a wide variety of media and genres from his early work on funny animal comics to painting pulp novel covers and movie posters to the animated film Fire & Ice. Even after losing the use of his right hand to a stroke, Frazetta continued to work by teaching himself to draw and paint with his left. On behalf of the CAF community we would like to extend our condolences to Frank Frazetta's family and friends.
