Fantasy illustrator Frank Frazetta has passed away at the age of 82. He is best known for his paintings of Conan, but began his career in the comic book industry.
Frazetta’s primary commercial works are in oil, but he also works with watercolor, ink and pencil alone. In his later life, Frazetta has been plagued by a variety of health problems, including a thyroid condition that went untreated for many years. In the 2000s, a series of strokes impaired Frazetta’s manual dexterity to a degree that he has switched to drawing and painting with his left hand.
