The Essence Of Frazetta

This is my last video and I ask the question what piece represents the essence of Frazetta. There are many answers to this question. People see different things in different works. I can see a very legitimate argument being made for any Canaveral plate, or Conan oil, or Death Dealer, or the Cat Girl oil. Curious what your thoughts are. You have time to deliberate as you wait for your catalogs to be delivered.

There is a very interesting Frazetta story at the end. In a few places in the video I am glancing to my right. I am actually looking at my iphone clock timer trying to keep the video under twenty minutes. I just made it by 15 seconds! My secure digital card had a twenty minute limit. Whew! I wanted to get it all in one take.

Frazetta Catalogs Almost Gone!!

If you want a catalog, you better order rather quickly. They are close to selling out. Go to the PROFILES IN HISTORY web site to order.

I just got my advance copy. The book reflects all the expectations I had for it. It is a stunning presentation, engaging, and immersive. This is as close as one can get to actually approximate seeing the original art. This catalog will instantly become a collector's item. I cannot wait for Frazetta fans and connoisseurs to get this volume in their hands. It is worth every penny.

What an incredible labor of love this represents and the very finest tribute to the legacy of Frank Frazetta!!

Frazetta Catalogs

The catalogs JUST came in from the binder. The first comment I heard was : "It's beautiful!"

I do not have a copy yet. Should be shipping very very soon.
Exciting times for Frazetta collectors!

Comments on Frazetta Erotic Images

As I promised, the images have been removed after a three day period. I had over a thousand views and countless positive comments. ONE person thought I was doing a disservice to the Frazetta family. What total nonsense. No one has done more to promote Frazetta's legacy for inclusion in art history. That takes intelligence and passion. I have been doing it for 35 years.  I have a legal right to show anything that I am selling. People must see things in order to buy them. This is only common sense.

Ellie Frazetta sold the supposedly racist cover to THUNDA 1 by giving it to an auction house. It was their cover image and made a lot of money for Ellie. Was she doing a disservice to the family? No, she was making money, doing business. Let us not be hypocrites here. The family sold the allegedly racist interior pages. Should they be blamed for tarnishing the legacy of Frank? No, of course not. Frank Frazetta loved this art. Everyone needs to understand that. Frank Jr. offers a portfolio of black natives on his web site. one is eating watermelon. Racist?  No, I think not. IT IS ART as visualized by Frank. These are beautifully drawn and beautifully colored. Is Frank Jr doing a disservice to the family? Absolutely not. He is exhibiting another facet of Frank's work.

Expand your horizons and see great art for what it is.

Frazetta Canaveral Plates

This is a two-part video covering some of the major Canaveral plates. Sorry about the confusion about the actual total number of plates.
