His works have a style of their own, anytime you see one of his, you know it right away. Most of the women he drew, were a little "thick" rather than the whisper thin ones so popular today.
Save America, IMPEACH OBAMA! And continue tossing out the deadbeat Democrats that are currently in office.

Nothing wrong with being rubenesque, in the right places.

I believe his posters were a staple of teenage boys' rooms back in the 70s - 80s... the popularity sort of dropped off when anorexia became more fashionable.

I was one of those boys ... I admired his artwork as I was into drawing fantasy, action, superhero stuff.

I loved Frazetta's work on the covers of Savage Sword of Conan. I still have all the first 120 issues in a box in my closet that is sealed. They may be worth something someday!
