He is also well known for art in comic books, Tarzan novels, iconic movie posters and record covers of the 60’s and 70’s. He was only a full time comic artist for a relatively short period of his life frzzetta he never drifted that far away so it makes sense that his art books have mostly been found in comic shops and his work written about by comics people. Frzetta illustrations included frazzetta comics from his childhood, movie posters, book covers and paintings.

Feb 29, Heather Renee’ rated it it was amazing Shelves: Controversially, Frazetta kept working on some of his best loved paintings and many fans including myself do not consider most of the later layers of paint to be improvements, although there were some I liked better.


I find many of his compositions too simple or too similar frzaetta I would have appreciated a little more real criticism. I feel like I’ve seen his 10 or so big pieces thousands of times, but a lot of his less popular works I’ve only seen occasionally and never all in one place. The man is a legend and influenced a raft of artists who came after him. Frank Frazetta died recently and for many art lovers he’ll be missed, but especially for fantasy fans it was a sad day.
