Frazetta Classics series with The Frazetta Sketchbook which was planned shortly before the icon of fantastic art's passing. The collection is brimming with rare and previously unpublished drawings and painting preliminaries of the subjects Frazetta is best remembered for including barbarians, wild beasts, Tarzan, buxom beauties, monsters and Conan. Foreword by New Yorker cover artist Peter de Seve
The Frazetta sketchbook is a welcome addition to the collections of available work, offering a previously unseen look at the creative process behind this great artist.
From simple scraps of paper revealing roughly blocked out shapes that test a composition, to fully rendered pen and ink drawings that capture powerful physical forms and action-pack set pieces it’s all trademark Frazetta and work to be savoured by fans. Much of his most popular and well-known images are here including the Conan and The Death Dealer book covers, early cartoons and Eerie comic book covers, plus we’re treated to a chapter showing his life-drawings that present a more realist Frazetta that you might be used to. Abandoned comic book illustrations from EC’s unfinished “Came The Dawn” story that were left in preliminary and mid-inked states offer an interesting look at his approach to comic work,
