Frank Frazetta died yesterday at age 82. Frazetta was an extraordinary individual. His images captured the hearts of many, and allowed their imaginations to go wild in his fantastic worlds, wolrds with vivid colors, heroic figures and iconic compositions. When I was a child my father showed me a couple of his comic book covers, and I remember being so in shock that a painter could do what he does. To this day I still feel the same.
In a way every artist owes him a little, I know I do. My first exposure was a cover for Imagine FX, an omage to Frazetta on his 80th Birthday. An honor I will hold dear for ages to come.

May he rest in peace. His legend will go on forever.
