No problem, guys. Only reason I said anything was because I can tell you'd consider my words rather than toss them off. Keep up the posts!

Hopefully you will stick around and share some stories or any Museum news. (thumbsu

"I’d like to think of the quality of my work as fine art. On the other hand, I’m in the wrong field. That’s because of people and their judgments. If you illustrate a book, you’re an illustrator. I’d like to think of Fine Art as being what it sounds like – fine. Quality. There are fine artists that do Comics, there are fine artists that do classical art, there are fine artists that do illustration and yet, if they’re in a certain field they think of themselves as fine artists when they could be terrible artists."

From an interview conducted by Steven Cerio with Frank Frazetta (2010), featured on Stevencerio.com (http://www.stevencerio.com/…/interview-with-frank-frazetta…/)

So this is a question I've been pondering.  Is there an artist who is currently alive who matches Frazetta's talent?  

No. There a few no doubt that can come close to matching his style, but not talent wise.

I tend not to compare artists because I don't like to grade creativity. But modern artists that draw similar themes and who I look forward to getting comics and artbooks from are Frank Cho and Mark Schultz.

Nope-they can be ordered online.  They have sizes that hold 3 to 12 magazines.  The books in the photo are in Mylite two’s with fullbacks.

They just fit in.  They’re available in light, medium and dark oak.  As soon as I saw one, I had to have it.   Prices vary widely - at first I was looking at $400+ for one this size 🤕 but then found Homesquare on the net and got it for $222 w free shipping.

Here’s another pic after a quick shuffle last week;

So you’ll be the first person to count the pieces?

xD  You are a squirrel, sir!  By the way, that  Vampirella puzzle has 532 pieces.  Jus' sayin'.  :acclaim:

Finally found my copy of this particular Frazetta jigsaw puzzle!  It's one of the tougher ones and this one was sealed so...   :whee:
