Frank Frazetta was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of eight, at the insistence of his school teachers, Frazetta's parents enrolled him in the Brooklyn Academy of Fine Arts. He attended the academy for eight years under the tutelage of Michele Falanga, an award-winning Italian fine artist. At 16, Frazetta started drawing for comic books that varied in themes: westerns, fantasy, mysteries, histories and other contemporary themes. Some of his earliest work was in funny animal comics, which he signed as "Fritz". During this period he turned down job offers from comic giants such as Walt Disney. In the early 1950s, he worked for EC Comics, National Comics (including the superhero feature "Shining Knight"), Avon and several other comic book companies. Much of his work in comic books was done in collaboration with friends Al Williamson and Roy Krenkel. Frazetta's work has long been admired by many Hollywood personalities. In early 2017, Frazetta Girls Transitioned from exhibiting at comic conventions to an online storre and lifestyle brand through in-house merchandising and a strong social media presence thanks to Frazetta Girls creative director, Joe Weber and print studio manager, Chris Lunardi.
