On May 10, 2010, the master of fantasy art, Frank Frazetta, passed away due to a stroke at 82 years old.
Being a Robert E. Howard fan, Frazetta's work has been a part of my life since I was a kid. My mother even had two mirror/paintings of Frazetta's. They were paintings of Conan, which she didn't know, she just liked them! His work in comics and book covers is legendary. His art has inspired my writing and fantasy RPG gaming countless times over the years.
Fantasy fans world wide will feel the void his passing has left.
Rest in peace, Mr Frazetta, and thank you for sharing your incredible art with us all.
