MOEBIUS, PATRON SAINT OF THE STRANGE by JakeWyatt MOEBIUS, PATRON SAINT OF THE STRANGE by JakeWyatt
Finally found a minute to pay my respects to Jean Giraud who passed away last week.

Moebius is one of the people who made comics a place I wanted to be. He brought the surreal, the strange, the disturbing into comics, and his influence has spread like a strange alien lichen across the breadth of the medium, beautifying and changing everything it touched.

He made comics a place where wild and wonderful things can grow, a garden of horrors and delights where artists can create with absolute freedom. He broke down the wall around the garden, let it run riot, and left it for us.

I hope he's passed on to a place just as strange and fabulous as the worlds he left behind.

Just finished the 'World of Edena' by Moebius, and wanted to come back and say you've done well to capture his style here. I can't wait to get my hands on more of his works

I isolated the lines using channels in photoshop, colored underneath them in flat tones, and then dropped a scanned texture on top of that in an overlay layer.

Those are some beautiful words said for this man who's inspired you so much. Thank you. I didn't know of him before & thanks to you, i just looked into him. He's definitely amazing.

I really dig your style :D It's so unique & very imaginative. Intriguing characters you draw, too! Keep it up~

Saw this on your tumblr and I was just so impressed. I love that there's been this shockwave all around the world caused by his death that has forced us all to be more creative in his absence, and this is just another fine example.

I love the bizarre Moebiusy coral formations. Especially that thingy on the lower right. Well observed, sir.
