ABOUT FRANK FRAZETTA
Frank Frazetta was a prolific world renowned American artist/illustrator. Born in Brooklyn, New York on February 9, 1928, by age 8, Frazetta was studying at the Brooklyn Academy of Fine Art. One of his key influences was Hal Foster, the great comic-strip artist whose “Tarzan” became a compass point for Frazetta’s own scenes of jungle peril. By his sixteenth birthday, Frazetta was working in the flourishing field of illustration in New York. He worked with Al Capp on “Li’l Abner” and on his own strip, “Johnny Comet” (later renamed “Ace McCoy“) in the early 1950s. He also illustrated comic books such as “The Shining Knight” and a western hero called “Ghost Rider.” But, Frazetta’s fame and magic would come to life with a paintbrush and in a more sensual sector when, in the 1960s, he began painting covers for paperbacks and magazines.
