    My tribute to Moebius

    First off, here's my little drawing of Blueberry, a famous character of Jean Giraud, a. k. a. Moebius. The posture and composition is all mine, I just jumped to one of many comic editions for reference on a technique.

    For those who like this master's art, you may watch this sneak peak into a documentary on his technique (in French, but valuable even without the verbal part). Click .

    I wonder what people on this Forum think of Franco-Belgian/European Comics and Moebius. I think of readers from USA in particular, since the style of these comics is different from the typical American comics. It is interesting to read on how this distincitve style of modern comics evolved in France in postwar years. The thing was, they had a rather nationalist culture policy sponsored by DeGauls government. So, in order to draw young people away from american comics, they pushed their own brand. Ironically, at least when Moebius is concerned, these comic artists grew up on Will Eisner, Raymond and other golden-agers, so European comics become the reinvention of traditional American comics. Sort of.

    I am glad that I can say that I don't drink, I don't smoke and I don't swear.

    Shit, I do drink and smoke.
