Artist Frank Frazetta has died

One of my favorite artists, Frank Frazetta, has died at age 82.

He died Monday morning, a day after suffering a stroke. He had been out to dinner with his daughters on Sunday. I'm happy that they were able to spend that time together.

If you've ever looked at fantasy books, you've seen his artwork. You've probably seen Frank Frazetta's artwork many times without realizing it. If you haven't seen a lot of his artwork, you need to know in advance (in case you are sensitive to nakedness) Frazetta would paint the human body without clothing - a LOT. They're fantasy pictures, after all, and the women are especially not the type you typically run into at Wal-Mart.

He was the master of evoking the majesty and excitement of a scene, and that really sold books. It makes me glad that he lived to be 82 and he spent his life doing what he wanted to do.
