Moebius


As you all know, the great Moebius (M. Jean Giraud) has died... he was one of the greatest illustrators and comic artists.


I loved his sense of color desgin and imagination. He invented a world all his own that influenced many artists and animators including yours truly. I've always heard he was working on a brand new feature film fully computer animated, yet I never saw the film released, if it ever was.


I did see two films that he worked on, the infamous "Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland" (1989) out of Japan, and then of course "Heavy Metal" (1981) out of Canada, which used his designs for one of its episodes.

I never met the great French artist, but I heard he was a bit eccentric and quite private.
But I think we all know him though his brilliant artwork, and will all miss his genius.

  2. To people who don't know him (these people are usually not artists, and if so, they are probably very young)
    a nice and accurate i heard him described was that he was "your favourite artist's favourite artist"
    To name just a few fans: Fellini, Miyazaki, Otomo, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, James Cameron, Paulo Coelho, Stan Lee and many many more...
    So Sad that he is gone
