Moebius Tribute Print for SD

Two birds with one stone as it were....I'm happy to say I've joined the "The Think Tank," Brett Bean and Justin Rodriguez's creative brain child and with it, a nod to the fantastic Morbius.

With the challenge, I was thinking about creating a few new prints to offer @ this year's Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego, I thought about many of the things that I was attracted to when I was a child. I feel in love with the film Willow (along with many others) but it was really a magazing that I found that had some development artwork in it that really made me attracted to the film even more. It just happened to be an artist named Moebius? Was that really a name, someone's REAL name?

Years later I found out who he was and what he was amazingly capable of.....a lot! So, here's a new print that's a thank you to the magical Moebius done in my own vision. It's just my way of saying........ thank you.

He really was spectacular.


Below is some of the artwork that inspired me (from a Starlog Magazine):

Moebius was he's pseudo. His real name was Jean Giraud and he died recently. One of my favourites that he illustrated is "L'incal".
By the way i really enjoy your work.
