To those of you not yet familiar with the legacy of Frank Frazetta, allow me to introduce you:
The man pictured on the left is Mr. Frank Frazetta; quite possibly the most influential illustrator of the past half century / legend. - Gees, what a stud! (There is a documentary about his life available that is definitely worth checking out.)
On the right is young George Lucas (who also had no small influence on my young, impressionable imagination.)
And because I am a firm believer that behind every great achiever is a supportive partner, I won't leave out the fact that pictured at center is Frank's wife and life partner Ellie Frazetta.

R.I.P. Great man! 1928 - 2010
Take a look at just a sampling of Frazetta's oil painting and see why I was blown away! (Copyright of Frank Frazetta)
