I heard the news early this evening about the death of French comic artist; Jean Giraud Moebius at age 73. I like to think he has just gone to another world instead; one like all those dreamy magic places that he created. I am dampened and sad, yet it is an amazing thing; his work strikes the visual chord on such an astounding level.

He has pathed the way. 

To see all pictures at their original size, click on the image once for the photo viewer.

This is one of my favourite illustrations of his; I scanned it from my own copy of Arzach. (I have a French version and don't speak much of the language, but that has never mattered to me). I shall sit and contemplate the loss...much like this chap is doing in the picture.
