Readers of fantasy novels know Frank Frazetta’s work even at a mere glance, so it should come as no surprise that he’s featured in the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day with this piece of Bran Mak Morn.

  1. Frazetta suck.

    i’m kidding, i love the guy’s art. i have 2 of his Death Dealer statue, one small on his horse, and one about 18 inches tall leaning against a big axe on a pile of skulls (pretty neat if you ask me).

    i also have about 200 jpegs of his drawings and sketches. the best Conan artist ever, closely followed by Cary Nord IMO

  2. Wait, you can do that? You can just drop letters out of your last name?

    I do love Frazetta, of course. Unfortunately that Death Dealer series that came out in the last year or so was pretty bad.
