Frank Frazetta, RIP
Frank Frazetta, the king of fantasy artists and illustrators, was one of the many important reasons that I never actually grew up (inside). He passed away yesterday at the age of 82.
This comprehensive post on Metafilter has more information about his life and works. If you don’t have patience to go through the entire post, I highly recommend checking out The Unofficial Frank Frazetta gallery (some sections NSFW).
