    Moebius has died...

    Oh, dear. French artist Jean Giraud, AKA Moebius, died today.

    Time to do an images search and stare at some beautiful artwork.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Here's a BBC4 documentary on Moebius from 2007.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    I hope Manara, Mead and Struzan won't follow. It seems like God wants an art exhibit in Heaven and He's recruiting the icons.

    RIP Moebius.

    Just found out about it when I reloaded the Newsarama site. I knew he was getting up there in age, but wasn't really aware he was struggling with his health.

    I'm really kind of shocked to be honest.


    He did a great Silver Surfer story with Stan Lee, I heartily recommend it. Surprisingly well-written by Lee too. I think it's actually my favorite SS story.



    Farewell to one of the true legends.

    Fuch.

    I just got really sad. He was one of my favorites.

    "Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

    Literally the first thing i read this morning on my twitter was this news, pretty sad.

    Both him and Ralph at least got to a good age and left enough of a legacy to fuel many generations to come.

    Another gut punch, another visionary 70's sci-fi artist. and Moebius was a special favourite of mine, no one dreamed like he did. Moebius, thank you for sharing, and being so prolific.
    Is the grim reaper going through all the M's on his rolodex? Syd Mead and Milo manara should go into hiding.

    Sweet dreams Moebius, thanks for marooning my imagination on another planet.

    Donīt even mention it man, could bring bad luck, i would be scared for Miyazaki if that were so.

    And mentioning Miyazaki, they both were friends, being in an an art show with both of them together would have blown my mind beyond repair

    Thank you Moebius. Thanks for the amazing surreal worlds you shared with us all. Thanks for being such an important and inspiring image maker. You shall be greatly missed.

    Something weird is happening, Dying are some guys that have never died before!

    He was quite old, but seemed like he would live a few more years, maybe because he was a very cool guy.

    I heard about this yesterday. He was an artist that inspired many and will most likely inspire many more in the future.

    I met him in he nineties, a very quiet humble man. One of the truly great artists of the century.

    If there is one thing about his art that I loved, the colors he chose would be it.
