Moebius

Here's a video of the greatest cartoonist in all of France, Jean Giraud, aka Moebius, drawing his famous western character, Blueberry:

I would watch a full-length movie of just this man drawing. I love everything about the style, the lettering...
I will do a post on his work soon.
I did a caricature of him here.

Here's a taste of his finished work:


I was introduced to the work by a book of Havey Kurtzman interviews. He was one of Kurtzman's favorite cartoonists.

This is such a cool video. It makes me wanna buy some brushes.

On a serious note, Moebius sounds like such a great artist.

He is absolutely great. His sci-fi strips are unbelievable. It's hard to believe a human being is capable of such talent!
