Don't You Say That It's All the Same

Given the way I have so severely fallen off my game, it will surprise none of you to note that I missed Frank Frazetta’s birthday. February 9th marked the 80th birthday of the Grand Master of Fantastic Art, and I would have remained blissfully, scandalously unaware were it not for a fortuitous dip into a Borders (or Barnes and Noble, maybe. One doesn’t quite remember) to seek out design magazines for creative inspiration. Now, I ask you family: what fills you with more bottomless African sadness? The fact that I had to be reminded of Frank’s birthday or the fact that I was dipping into a Borders for my aesthetic inspiration?

At any rate, a belated happy birthday, Frank.
