Description:
Frank Frazetta Frazetta: Illustrations Arcanum Preliminary Illustration Original Art (1993). In the nineties Frazetta created a superb series of pencil drawings based on monsters and demons, and here is a ferociously feral preliminary sketch study for one of the finished plates. Frazetta has said, "The pencil is a lost form, the artist's true vision, I can smudge, I can erase lines, I can make the pencil talk." This fantasy masterpiece has an overall size of 8.25" x 10.75", and the art is in Excellent condition. Initialed at the lower left.

Frazetta, Frank:Frank Frazetta (American, b. 1928): An artistic prodigy, Frank Frazetta broke into comic books at the age of 16 out of economic necessity. A series of landmark Buck Rogers covers for Famous Funnies and several outstanding EC jobs brought Frazetta to the attention of comic strip artist Al Capp, and he was soon hired to assist on the Li'l Abner Sunday strips from 1952-61. By the time that Frazetta had quit working for Capp, the comic book market had atrophied and his freelance opportunities had all but dried up. Frazetta was forced into the illustration market at large, and it proved to be a blessing in disguise. After creating a series of well-received movie posters and paperback covers, Frazetta's fortune was secured when he painted his world-famous paperback covers for Robert E. Howard's Conan character. A string of spectacular covers for Warren Publishing's titles Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella added to his success. Frank Frazetta is now widely regarded as the master of modern fantasy art..
