First Lena Horne and now Frank Frazetta....

I just saw that Frank Frazetta has passed away at the age of 82....his artwork inspired my longing to tell wild tales while I was growing up...and his Conan will always be the Conan I see in my head....

his wiki page is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Frazetta

An obituary notice at ComicsBeat has the most iconographic Conan illustration and a fairly recent photo of the artist

This makes MamaKK sad...another hero from my childhood gone....

Oh wow, Frazetta. I remember his posters oh so well. And yes, always Conan.



RIP and enjoy the wild ride on the other side.

Didn't know about Lena Horne either.

Ya know, I think I'm boycotting the obits. What good do they do me? *hugs*

Don't normally read'em myself...these popped up in odd places for me...

But I am comforted by the fact both these people had long, productive lives for the most part. I'm tired of tragedies.
