Frank Frazetta passed away this morning.
I’m at a loss for words.
Luckily many other have tweeted their sympathies:
Mike Hawthorne I’m going to dedicate my run on CONAN to Frank Frazetta. R.I.P. – http://ow.ly/1Jc2k
Frank Tieri R.I.P. Frank Frazetta.
Jimmy Palmiotti Met FRAZETTA, hung out at his place, talked art, brooklyn, comics and women. The man was a true legend in every way. This is a huge loss. Been a dream of mine to one day work with Frank…but like most dreams…
Scott Allie RIP Frank Frazetta, visionary.
Rob Liefeld Frank Frazetta R.I.P. The best illustrator,painter, artist of this or any generation has passed away.
However.. I think it’s Rick Remender who really nailed it with this: “Frank Frazetta with his first-of-its-kind renaissance pulp made such an impact on our imaginations, thank God we had him. The legend endures”
I don’t think I have the appropriate words for Mr. Frazetta, not right now. I’ll leave you guys with this image from one of my and Brent Chittenden’s favourite Frazetta pieces “Fire & Ice” a movie collaboration with Ralph Bashki.
