The iconic and legendary artist Frank Frazetta is well known by fans of fantasy, sci-fi, and horror, for his works have been used in everything from album art, movie posters, calendars and more. Now Metal Blade Records have secured the exclusive license for four of Frazetta’s finest works of art for some awesome shirt designs. Read on to find out how to get your hands on these incredible shirt designs.
From The Press Release
As previously announced, Metal Blade Records has obtained an official license for 4 designs by the late fantasy artist master, Frank Frazetta (http://frankfrazetta.net). Shirts featuring “The Berserker”, “The Barbarian”, “Silver Warrior”, and “Death Dealer” (including an enlarged front and back version!) are all available now at:http://www.indiemerch.com/metalbladerecords/band/frazetta
Since the age of 16, Frazetta drew for comic books that varied in themes: westerns, fantasies, mysteries, and histories. During the 60s, he then went on to produce paintings for paperback editions of adventure books, such as the cover for the sword-and-sorcery collection Conan the Adventurer by Robert E. Howard and L. Sprague de Camp (Lancer 1966), which saw the artist rise to fame. With his work in high demand, Frazetta chose projects that were more commercial in nature, providing paintings and illustrations for everything from movie posters to book jackets to calendars. Admired by many Hollywood personalities, he was even commissioned for some film work by Clint Eastwood and George Lucas, among others. Most recently, his artwork has been used for several album covers: Molly Hatchet‘s first 2 records feature “The Death Dealer” and “Dark Kingdom” respectively; Nazarethused “The Brain” for 1977’s Expect No Mercy; Wolfmother put “The Sea Witch” on their self-titled debut.
Now, due to a special partnership with Metal Blade Records, Frazetta fans can wear some of their favorite designs (with more merchandise coming soon!).
