REHupa Official Editor Bill "Indy" Cavalier posted this tribute to Frank on the REHupa website and it perfectly captures the sadness of Frank's passing while also reminding us of Frank's unmatched legacy - well done Indy.

I just read the news.

I visit the museum every year when I go to the poconos to vacation for the week.

Very sad. RIP Frank.

"Frank, meet Robert... Robert meet Frank"


I'd like to think it's our own Dan "Painbrush" Goudey making that introduction. B) He'll be giddy as a schoolboy, seeing two of his heroes shake hands, as Fritz finally gets to ask Bob what he thought of his work.

Such sad news. Frank Frazetta was undoubtedly the greatest fantasy artist to walk this earth. But more than that, he was simply the greatest artist of his day, period. His paintings and ink drawings had a vitality to them unmatched in other works. Those works of art breathed. He gave life to his artwork, and in that artwork, he will live on.

"It has fallen upon me, now and again in my sojourns through the world, to ease various evil men of their lives."

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.
