Sword & Sworcery EP dev Superbrothers eulogizes Frank Frazetta

swordsworceryfrazetta.jpg With the moons in alignment and the latest "teletex bulletin" released, Superbrothers -- 1/3 of the holy trinity behind upcoming iPhone adventure Sword & Sworcery EP and creator of Boing Boing feature Less Talk, More Rock -- has written a lovely eulogy for recently departed artist Frank Frazetta:
Frazetta is many things - a 20th century old master, a pop surrealist pioneer, one of the finest book illustrators who ever lived - but those descriptors can't communicate the enormity of his legacy. If a painting is awesome, if it kicks you in the teeth & grins, if the darks are dark, the skies afire, the men hard and heavy with muscle & sinew, the women voluptuous and/or diabolical, the figures masterfully sculpted, the creatures immaculately constructed, the action over-the-top, the colors vivid, the compositions bold & striking & bloody & fierce ... if an eerie moon rises above a craggy mountaintop castle, then it's likely that Frazetta lurks within... and he's probably watching the Mets.
