Rest in Peace, Jean "Moebius" Giraud

Highly influential French artist Jean Moebius" Giraud passed away today in Paris.

I'll let others wax rhapsodic about the mastery of his art in comics ("The Airtight Garage", "Arzach", "The Incal", "Silver Surfer: Parable", "Blueberry", etc.,  and and his design work in film ("Alien", "Tron"., "Willow", among others). 

Instead, I'll share a couple of visuals. Two photos from WonderCon 1999... and the original sketch I was given by him at the same event.
