Found this tribute painting on another forum. I believe it does an excellent job of summing up all the wishes of Frazetta's fans.

You might want to enlarge it to get an idea of who is coming through the door.

I generally find images like this to be unbearably cheesy, but frankly, this is my favourite of the Frazetta tributes so far. Particularly since it's Luana taking Frazetta's hand: Luana was the first Frazetta image I ever laid eyes on. B)

Hey, I'd like to see that bad boy. When's it coming to Raleighwood, NC?

Saw the IMax Vincent Van Gogh film last fall and it was very cool.

Yeah, I'm just going to have to buy Painting with Fire. Buy it. Own it. Watch it xxx times while hoisting a brew to Frank's shade.

Cool. I've seen the dvd (and intend to watch it and Fire and Ice again soon) and would love to see it on the big screen. What a treat.

With this sad news I have had a great desire to watch my copy of Fire and Ice/Painting with Fire: What should have been a breakout flick for such a great artist and his biography. A superb way, in my opinion, to honor Frank Frazetta, the man who captured my heart and helped release my creativity with his work...

And I couldn't find my dvd!

What a frantic search that began, as there was a chance it might've disappeared mysteriously, but thankfully I found it. So in the coming days I will be watching Fire and Ice, followed by Painting with Fire -- and might top it off with The Whole Wide World in honor of the other man who captured my heart and helped release my creativity with his work.

May my favorite artist and writer share interesting times together in the afterlife...
Crom!

The more I think about it, the sadder I get. It's a shame I never got to meet the man. I also have friends in East Stroudsburg, so I really don't have an excuse for never going to the museum.

Small Washington Post piece about the debt REH Fans owe Mr. Frazetta.

http://www.washingto...0051703706.html
"Their present king is the most renowned warrior among the western nations. He is an outlander, an adventurer who seized the crown by force during a time of civil strife, strangling King Namedides with his own hands, upon the very throne. His name is Conan, and no man can stand before him in battle." ~ Orastes, 'The Hour Of The Dragon'

The bottom line is Frank sr owns the paintings.So its up to him to sign a complaint or drop the charges.This is a weird situation.



Frank Sr. may have "owned" his paintings for the last 9 months of his life, but as soon as he set up that LLC (at the urgings of Frank Jr's siblings, from what I hear), he no longer had ANY real control over said paintings. I go over the details here:


http://www.thecimmerian.com/?p=8559

BTW, I've heard rumors that Fritz's painting, "Kane and the Golden Sea", has been missing since late 2009 (no, NOT related to Frank Jr's "heist").
