Frazetta: Birthday Card


I just came across this birthday card that Frank drew for Ellie's father. It's never been seen.

Interesting that Frank took it back!

PS: I'll probably post one or two more items and then take a long break for the Christmas and New Year's holidays. It's a very hectic time of year for me.

  1. I would guess that Frank got the card back because it is not the most flattering depiction of his father in law. Ha ha. Great artwork however.

    I love seeing the unseen, unpublished Frazetta art. Please keep it up!

  5. BTW David. John Howe who posted above is one of the most well known fantasy illustrators from the UK. One of the two responsible for setting the look and feel of the LOTR movies a few years ago.

  6. Thanks Adrian. I didn't want to come off as being harsh. It wasn't my intention. I get people writing me EVERY single day with HUNDREDS of FF questions. This blog site is simply all I can handle at the moment. I have many other interests and enthusiasms I engage in. I just don't want to get thoroughly bogged down.

    Thanks again.

    DAVE
