I was saddened yesterday to find out about the passing of one of the legends of fantastic art, Jean Giraud a.k.a. Moebius. His work was a tremendous influence on my own, and books of his art and comics were some of the seed stock for my library of art books back when I was still in high school. If you're not acquainted with his work, now's as good a time as any to go forth and seek it out.
So here's to a transformative artist, may the world he's moved on to be as wonderful as the worlds he'd shared with us for all these years. He will be missed, but his work will be his immortality.
Thank you, Mister Giraud. Rest in peace.
