Frank Frazetta - 1928 - 2010

Frank Frazetta passed away today at the age of 82. This man's artwork was truly legendary and I have nothing to add to all the words that will said about him. I can, however, post some ads from TV Guide that he did for the original Battlestar Galactica back in 1976: (I did sell these a few years ago on ebay for about $10 each, iirc)

For extra grins read the listing for the Mary Tyler Moore variety show with David Letterman as part of her comedy group. Other good names in there as well.

A brilliant, brilliant artist.

For those who love art, by all means do not miss the fantastic Frazetta documentary, PAINTING WITH FIRE. Not only does it show what a down-to-earth guy Frank Frazetta was, but how he and his beloved wife Eleanor were a team. She herself died last Summer.
