Frank Frazetta, 1928-2010

The above image is my favorite of the many brilliant works of artist Frank Frazetta, who died today at age 82.

From his seminal Conan paintings, which covered the paperbacks which introduced me to the barbarian, to his iconic Deathdealer which graced Molly Hatchet album covers, to the production art that he did for Battlestar Galactica in the 70s, and far, far more — Frank Frazetta’s work was a constant companion throughout my life.

I never met the man, but his work profoundly influenced my imagination during my formative years, and for that, I will be forever grateful.
