    Frank Frazetta Blonde Nude with Mushroom Sketch Original Art (1978). Frank Frazetta's art has been admired and cherished for generations, with nearly everything he ever drew or painted reproduced in countless books and magazines, but here's a little number you'll not find in any of those sources. The story is that Frazetta created several pieces of art for pioneering art dealer and publisher Russ Cochran to sell on his behalf at one of Phil Seuling's now-legendary New York Comic Art Conventions, in 1978. Frank held four pieces back, and when Russ brought film producer and collector Tom Warford to Frazetta's studio for a visit, they were purchased at that time. Mr. Warford kept these wonderful sketches stashed away at his home until just recently. This is the first time since that initial purchase that this piece has been offered for sale. The art is in ink on paper, with an approximate image area of 2.5" x 5", and is matted and framed with glass to an overall size of 12" x 15". It's in Excellent condition.
