Barbaric Watercolor by Frank Frazetta

 Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.  At the end of last summer, I had a post called Tiny Barbarians, with those two images from an art catalog from 1974, lamenting I couldnae see them clearly, nor with the watercolors talked about in the catalog.  Viola, as Bugs would say, one outa two ain't bad

Savage World by Frank Frazetta

 Okay, I'm the Cap'n, and I over-post some favs (Hi, Cap'n!).  So Monster Mania has been fundundantly posted over the years, but I dunnae think I ever noticed the third Neanderthal was replaced with Shemp sometime after the magazine.  You may recall Shemp also replaced Curly in the Stooges

Scorpio by Jim Steranko

 Although there's noth'n new to see here (move along, folks, just move along), the first two images are kinda cool.  They are from an eBay listing 19 years ago (almost to the day).  Seven years after that, I started a blog, and clearly forgot a ton of stuff I was think'n bout pre-blog.  wow.  Stay tuned

Shades Of Kandar by Jeff Jones

 Had the last two up in the wayback (with the pencils, even), just never realized how different this art can look based on the printing (which was all at the same time, I believe)
