Frank Frazetta is considered THE greatest heroic-fantasy artist of all time. His work has influenced generations of artists, fans, designers, and movie directors. The Hall of Fame illustrators, fans, awards and accolades are legion; springing from his breathtaking paintings for book covers featuring Tarzan, King Kong, and John Carter of Mars; monster magazines Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella; to his major movie posters, including After the Fox, The Night They Raided Minsky's and Whats New Pussycat?; album covers like Molly Hatchet's Flirtin With Disaster and, of course, his revolutionary Conan paintings. Pop-culture historian and Vanguard publisher J. David Spurlock said, Frazetta mixed sensuality, a heightened sense of adventure and classicism in a way that no other has ever accomplished. . . makes his living the way he lives his life: in the fast lane.breathtaking. time capsule of classic illustrated fiction. -- LIBRARY JOURNAL Aug 5, 2011.

Born Frank Frazzetta in Brooklyn, New York City, he removed one "z" from his last name early in his career to make his name seem less "clumsy". The only boy among four children, he spent much time with his grandmother, who began encouraging him in art when he was two years old, he recalled in 2010, a month before his death.

When I drew something, she would be the one to say it was wonderful and would give me a penny to keep going. Sometimes I had nothing left to draw on but toilet paper. As I got older, I started drawing some pretty wild things for my age. I remember the teachers were always mesmerized by what I was doing, so it was hard to learn anything from them. So I went to art school when I was a little kid, and even there the teachers were flipping out.

At age eight, Frazetta attended the Brooklyn Academy of Fine Arts, a small art school run by instructor Michel Falanga. "[H]e didn't teach me anything, really," Frazetta said in 1994. "He'd come and see where I was working, and he might say, 'Very nice, very nice. But perhaps if you did this or that.' But that's about it. We never had any great conversations. He spoke very broken English. He kind of left you on your own. I learned more from my friends there[wiki]
