Frank Frazetta, Fantasy Illustrator, Dies at 82

GeeCee alerted me to this. Of course Frank painted many subjects including Conan, but I know his work from a completely different venue.

This painting, shown on Frank's obit on the New York Times site, is very familiar to anyone who has served as part of the U.S. Army's Third Armored Corps (III Corps). Their headquarters at Fort Hood, Texas, has many renderings of this painting, where the figure is interpreted as a Phantom Warrior, a nickname for the Corps dating from World War II.

  1. Yeah, he's had so many iconic pieces, it's no wonder his art has touched people in so many different ways.
