There is no doubt about it, french artist Jean Giraud (a.k.a. Mœbius) could draw. His work is something that reaches out and grabs your attention. He had a style of drawing all his own, with line work that is impeccable and second to none. What always fascinated me was his use of light and dark, and the way he’d build complete pictures with simple lines, or negative space. His rendering is extremely precise and beautiful, but also kinda loose at the same time.
He left behind a huge body of work. I probably first became familiar with him with Heavy Metal, but remember him the most from his work on the Silver Surfer. Mœbius was also a story board and concept artist for films like Alien, Willow and Tron. There has been so much since then too.
Rest in peace.
