Happy Birthday Frank Frazetta

While I was growing up and immersing myself in the fantastic worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs, no other artist captivated my imagination quite like the one and only Frank Frazetta.

It's safe to say, I think, that I wouldn't be the writer I am today without Frank's iconic influence. In fact, I suspect that many like me wouldn't have had careers without him. I don't consider it an exaggeration that Frazetta created the current fantasy/adventure genre that I've enjoyed contributing to for over twenty years.

So, Happiest of Birthdays to you, sir. Your brush burns brighter today than ever before.

  1. Thanks for reminding me Martin, about Frank's Birthday. Like you, I probably wouldn't have tried to be an artist with guys like Frank and Jack Kirby.

  2. Oh- this is fabulous. Wow! Thanks for sharing and Happy Birthday Frank!
