Frank Frazetta - Illustration Original Art (1993). In an interview Frank Frazetta once 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." A cropped version of the female figure seen in this drawing was used on the cover of the art book, Frazetta: Illustrations Arcanum (Illustrators Artbook Series), a collection of previously unpublished pencil drawings published by Verotik, in 1994. The image area of this drawing is 13" x 19" and the piece has been professionally matted to an overall size of 19" x 25.5". Minor indentations can scarcely be seen on the left side of the paper, near the second and third tentacles of the octopus-like creature. Frank Frazetta produced a series of pencil drawings based on monsters and demons in the 1990s, and this is one of the most inspired and compelling of that series.
