Apparently it is confirmed that the Godfather of Fantasy Art, Frank Frazetta has passed away at the age of 82.
There is no doubt that his work in comics, painting and illustration has been a huge influence on millions of artists, film-makers, gamer-designers and pop culture as a whole.
His vision of Howard's brutal and vicious Hyporean age, Burroughs' Mars stories and raw fantasy power as well has been burned into our subconsciousness for all time.
Truly a master artist who's mark will forever be stamped on the world of pop (pulp) culture. His passion and life will be honored and missed. Condolences to his friends and family.
