Frazetta, A Great Loss

He recalled in 2010, a month before his death,

When I drew something, my grandmother would be the one to say it was wonderful and would give me a penny to keep going. Sometimes I had nothing left to draw on but toilet paper. As I got older, I started drawing some pretty wild things for my age. I remember the teachers were always mesmerized by what I was doing, so it was hard to learn anything from them. So I went to art school when I was a little kid, and even there the teachers were flipping out.

Frazetta died of a stroke on May 10, 2010, in a hospital near his residence in Florida
