Legendary artist Moebius dies

Sci-fi loses another visionary

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The world of sci-fi is in mourning after legendary French cult artist 'Moebius' died following a long battle with cancer.

Jean "Moebius" Giraud, whose stunning fantasy artwork and drawings for comics influenced some of the biggest names in the business, succumbed to his ailments this weekend aged 73.

As well as providing designs for many films, including Alien, Tron, The Abyss and Willow, the artist's influence was perhaps best known in the comic world, where he found fame creating the Western character Lieutenant Blueberry, before adopting the pseudonym Moebius for his work on sci-fi books and magazines.

The modest artist said in an interview with the LA Times in 2011:

"They said that I changed their life... 'Your work is why I became an artist.' Oh, it makes me happy. But you know at same time I have an internal broom to clean it all up. It can be dangerous to believe it. Someone wrote: ‘Moebius is a legendary artist.' I put a frame around me. A legend - now I am like a unicorn."

Here's a selection of his work:

With last week's passing of Ralph McQuarrie, the sci-fi world has lost two of its most-respected visionaries.

Rest in peace, Moebius. ®
