Week 10: A tribute to Jean 'Moebius' Giraud


This week legendary illustrator Jean"Moebius" Giraud passed away, leaving the world with decades worth of his beautiful illustrations, and influencing countless artists across every spectrum imaginable. From the fine arts to comics, to video games and movies, Moebius's imagination influenced us all. Here at the RBMC we pay tribute to the life and art of arguably one of the greatest artistic minds of the 20th century, by dedicating this weeks topic to a true legend. Moebius you will be missed, but you will live forever in your art.

Thank you,
 RBMC

Here in the states, Moebius's comics can be hard to come by (hopefully this changes at some point soon), but I cannot recommend more highly reading any comic of his at any chance you get, they are simply amazing. I have included a few links to some nice tributes to Moebius and a few galleries of his work, I hope you enjoy them as immensely as I have.
