MOEBIUS (May 8th, 1938 – March 10th, 2012)

[I know im late but i wanted to give the man a proper post]

Arzach was the very first comic i'd ever read that wasnt full of superheroes.

Back when i was a kid my friend kenneth would bring over issues of Heavy Metal magazine, which i wasnt allowed to have or read. The magics inside were like comics, but they were full of craziness and violence and aliens and monsters and drugs and naked girls. Fantasy. Magic. Otherworldly adventures. I'd never seen anything like it, it blew my fucking mind apart all over the walls.

This marks the passing of one of the most influential comic artists of our lifetimes, and without a doubt one of the reasons i draw to this day. his work is so mindblowing and beautiful, his grasp of psychedelic perspectives and lineworks and the dreamworlds he created will never be forgotten.

The man was a god, he influenced our influences.

Think about that.
