Kull: The Cat and the Skull cover painting for issue #4
|I am a fan of the late Frank Frazetta's work, and was lucky enough to visit his home in East Stroudsburg, PA, 10 years ago, to see many of his famous originals that were housed in a small gallery on the grounds, next to his his house. I always wanted to try my hand at a Frazettaesque painting and my editors at Dark Horse were cool enough to permit me to lend my brushes to their 4-issue, 'Kull' series, entitled "Kull: The Cat and the Skull". This is my painting for the cover of issue #4.|
