Frank Frazetta

Xul was confused to hear of the death of Frank Frazetta, a truly wonderful artist and dark inspiration in the world of fantasy paintings.

Best known for his works on Robert E Howards Conan of Cimmeria in the 1970's, Frazettas work could not, and cannot be ignored, it is unmistakeable.

His paintings always carried with them a source of meance and grimness that others have tried to reproduce but constantly failed, simply because they are not Frazetta, now Frazetta is dead, so is fantasy art.

The King is dead, long live the King.
