Frank Frazetta, Fantasy Artist for Conan & Tarzan, Has Died

Famed fantasy artist Frank Frazetta passed away today at 82-years-old. The great artist illustrated everything from the EC comic books to Conan the Barbarian covers.

On YouTube, fans have created scores of tribute videos to Frazetta instantly-recognizable work–including the video embedded above, with more than 19,000 views (NSFW). Edward Champion linked to some great safe-for-work examples of his work, including a Mad Max poster and an iconic fantasy image.

Here’s a touching tribute from Comics Beat: “His covers for Conan, Tarzan and other rough hewn heroes created a visceral, violent, erotic yet somehow still nuanced visual style that has been endlessly imitated but never surpassed — Frazetta’s imagery of brawny, relentless swordsmen, seductive, fleshy sirens and hellfire breathing monsters had a gut level impact because it came from the gut — his many followers were just tracing without the passion of the originals.”
