APPRECIATION: Frank Frazetta painted with fire on a timeless canvas
Got to love Frazetta! I'll have to find some more of his work. I actually bought a few of the art books of his a while back, I should pull them out again and have a good browse through with a cup of coffee. Such an inspiring artist, and an incredibly driven guy.
In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. The main story told about Icarus is his attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. He ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and the melting wax caused him to fall into the sea where he drowned
