I know a lot of you must have heard by now that Frank Frezetta has passed away. You also have undoubtedly read a couple of sappy posts like this where all these wanna-be's, who have never met the guy, post about how sad it is. There is a reason for that. Frank Frezatta wasn't just a great "fantasy" artist. He was perhaps the best artist of our age. Blasphemy you say? Go let your hot air out. Frank's Art was, in my opinion, the best; plain and simple. The subject matter of Frank's paintings might not have been something Mom and Pop were going to hang in the living room, but his ability as a painter was unparalleled. When someone that great is alive when you're alive it inspires you as an artist, pushes you to do better, and when he's gone there is a real sadness.
Frank- I never met you, but I idolized you from afar; rest in peace. Your art will always be alive and a testament to your greatness for generations to come.
