MOEBIUS

Great subject pick, Mark!

My list of favorite artists is way too long, and the previous WhotNotists have already tributed some (Toth, Simonson, etc). I have tributed other artists already (I tribute Alex Raymond on each cover for Flash Gordon for example) so for this week topic I went with one artist who might have influenced me more than I know: Jean Giraud, known also with his art name of MOEBIUS.
The man is a living legend and this is my humble tribute to him.

Cheers,
Francesco

Jean MĹ“bius Giraud is dead this morning saturday 10th March! Sad day in France, he was a great master and a simple man at the same time. Your very beautiful painting is an amazing tribute to him. Thank you for this. The "Drink N Draw Paris" will try to draw some tribute to him next wednsday. I hope mine will honor his work as you do.
It was a coincidence, I just wanted to check the Frank Frazetta of Dan Panosian first...

The tribute session for the Master Jean Moebius Giraud was great many people came in. I am not surprised you professionals and fan about creation did a tribute to him too, and I enjoy about this. Thank you. Here is my modest tribut :
