"Moebius", Jean Giraud. First found his work in the 80's in Heavy Metal and loved the clean lines and simple but effective shadings, a nice relief from overblown productions. When my wife went to France when we were dating she asked if I wanted anything, I said any books by Moebius and a French Calvin and Hobbes book. She brought them for me.
JEAN "MOEBIUS" GIRAUD ~ held so much artistic influence over so many things/artists I fell in love with. The Fifth Element, Naussica, Tron, Dragonball, Die Aantwoord, Neil Gaiman, Alien, Akira, The Silver Surfer, Little Nemo, Heavy Metal, Heman / Masters of the Universe, Willow, Star Wars Episode V, & Panzer Dragoon #RIP
