RIP: Frank Frazetta (1928-2010)

Sad day for the poster world. Fantastic fantasy art illustrator, Frank Frazetta, died today at the age of 82.

Let’s hope he made up with his son, Frank Frazetta Jr., who reportedly tried breaking into dad’s museum last year with a backhoe.

Casaro the Barbarian!

The Italian-born Renato Casaro has worked with his fair share of auteurs, including Bernardo Bertolucci, Francis Ford Coppola and yes, even Kevin Costner.

Having sketched out a distinguished career of painting epic scenes and classic Hollywood spoofs, he has since moved onto do portraits of the American West and African wildlife, much like his fellow contemporaries, John Solie, Robert Tanenbaum, and Howard Terpning.
