File 162: Moebius (Jean Giraud) 1938-2012

In the 1970s My Dad brought home an issue of Heavy Metal magazine, inside were comics. The most fantastic looking of the stories was The Long Tomorrow, this  comic had a huge impact on me as the artwork had a cartoony realism and also a highly charged eroticism. Through the years I've always followed Moebius's work and gained inspiration. I always felt that this guy could draw any subject in any style, I want to be that kind of artist.
 Moebius also said something regarding comic art in an interview that I never Forgot : " The artist must be the warrior and fight for his ideas, because who else will fight for you? The publisher? No, it is the artist who brings the new ideas"
