Originally drawn and published last wednesday. That is the 12th of May, 2010.
Part 1 will be published next week. But they don't really have much in common except the juggling.
Anyhow... Enough has probably been said about Frank Frazetta's death, so I'll keep it short.
Most aspiring artists, in their tweens and teens, have a phase where in our minds technique and draftsmanship are elevated to the highest of arts. That's usually the phase where we start loving Dali and the Post-Raphaelites and fantasy-artists. I went through a lot of fantasy artists, like Joe Jusko and Luis Royo, and some I still love like Simon Bisley. But whenever I look back at them, a little more of the charm I once saw is gone. The more I learn about technique, the less interest a Dali or Royo holds on me. But Frazetta... Every time I go back, I see more and more. Because his work is unique, in all art. And I know that every time I go back, I will always see more.
So, rest in peace, Frank Frazetta. You will continue to inspire me forever.
