My love for westerns is pretty well known in most cricles...so it was a given that I would tackle Blueberry..(Although the film Heavy Metal came a close 2nd.) So I'll throw my placeholder up until I'm finished. But with Tims piece so breathtakingly illustrated I will try and do Moebius and Tim, justice.
The passing of Moebius I predict will have just as a long, heartfelt affect as his art did for all of us who read Heavy Metal magazine. In all honesty it wasn't until the film Heavy Metal came out that I began to revisit the magazine and Moebius' art. However I hate to admit that I've never read Blueberry. I've seen the flik Renegade, based on the character...but other than images of his exquisite work on the series, I've yet to read it. I hope to rectify that very...very soon. That being said of the images I've seen, more so than anything else, personally it was his attention to details and his backgrounds in that series that just blew me away. So I wanted to do a piece that was a tribute to not only him as an artist, but a send off to one of those few human beings that have the gift to influence...entertain...and motivate people.
