Frank Frazatta


These are some examples of the work of Frank Frazatta. I don’t know why but I’ve always been attracted to his work. It is all dark, mysterious, fantastical, and sexual- all very good adjectives. I find the slightly comic book and heavily epic feel of the art to really click with me. I mean look how evil the black knight looks, you can almost feel the agony of being suffocated by that huge anaconda, and the shadows, muscles, and butt on the third picture really takes you into that dungeon. I guess the uber-geek in me, the one that loves tearing through a fluff filled sci-fi/fantasy novel just gets all riled up when I look at these images. Good stuff Frank, RIP and I hope to own one for my wall someday.
