Worship Chaos

RIP Jean Giraud, aka Moebius

Jean Giraud, known in the art world as Moebius, has died at the age of 73. Moebius was a French artist best known for his comic book work but also his work on films like Tron and Alien. His creative style and attention to detail made him a well-known and well-loved (as well as much-desired) force on the art world. His influence can be found all over, both in film and on the page.

I was introduced to Moebius' work way back in the dark ages of the 80's through (no surprise) Heavy Metal magazine, and I've enjoyed it ever since. Sorry to see you leave us, sir, but your presence will be felt for a long time to come.
