Frank Frazetta 1928 - 2010

You may not know the name, but you have definitely seen his work somewhere. Whether it be in comics, movie posters, album covers, movies, or book covers.

He was a major influence in my fantasy artwork and an influence to many others, I'm sure. I remember seeing the movie "Fire and Ice" when I was young and being fascinated by the images - not knowing who the conceptual artist was behind them. Frazetta is definitely one of the reasons I migrated towards illustration. His artwork is powerful and full of tension. He was able to capture a scene at just the right moment without making it look static.

I looked through a lot of his images to find a good one to place here and couldn't decide so I picked one at random (still a favourite). If you'd like to see an extensive online collection you can go here.

  35. There's more to Amsterdam than its notorious "coffee shops" and Red Light District. Spend the day biking through the city's stylish streets before exploring noteworthy museums, such as the Van Gogh Museum, Verzetsmuseum and the Anne Frank House. Plan a picnic in Vondelpark for lunch, or opt for a boat tour along the city's many canals when it's time to rest your feet. Friendly locals and affordable hotels keep bringing travelers back, especially during the warmer months. This one of the best travel destination for those people who are looking hookers and night life enjoyment.
