Drink And Draw In Honor Of Frank Frazetta Tomorrow

"Castle of Sin" 1978

Did you really think that role-playing / fantasy geeks actually give a shit about wizards and broadswords and stuff? The truth is, they are in it for the voluptuous fantasy babes. No one understood this better than legendary painter and apparent ass man Frank Frazetta, who passed away Monday.

In his honor, Mission Comics & Art is hosting a “Memorial Drink and Draw,” featuring live art, music, and models. I assume “models” means Vampirella-type female models, but it could very well mean paintable Warhammer 40000 pewter models. Attend at your own risk.

The event starts at 8pm tomorrow at 3520 20th St. More info at on their blog.

    It’s a good thing that I will never be able to afford to buy the original of that first painting, because I would probably cut off the left-hand side of it, donate it to Community Thrift, and enshrine the remainder at the foot of my bed.

  2. Frank Frazetta has passed. His work will live on. What more can a man do while here for this short time? Fantastic work that will inspire and be appreciated for generations.

  3. How sad – Frank’s gone and no replacement in sight with his strength of line, composition, sense of humor and sensuality so far removed from smut.
    Unfortunately, I’m unable to attend the Drink ‘n’ Draw memorial. I’ll peruse my CD collection of Frank’s best works, drink a toast or two and I’ll be with you in spirit.

    Have a drink for me!! :-(
