Ken Kelly, one of the most talented fantasy artists of the last 50 years, passed away at the age of 76.
Frank Frazetta’s nephew, Kelly is famous for his work on album covers, having seen everything from KISS’ destroyer to rainbows rising
Kelly also worked closely with several major toy companies in the US 1980s, with perhaps his best-known contributions masters of the universe and micronauts paintings while also being responsible for some of the coolest Star Wars: Expanded Universe Stuff from the 1990s and beyond.
However, alongside his more commercial work, Kelly was also simply notable for the amount of hard-hitting fantasy art he was able to create, sometimes for, over the course of his career Conan the Barbarian
