Well, not much to preface these with. It's Moebius.

If anyone is not familiar with this man...nay....LEGEND's work (Which by the way is difficult to find the really great pieces online) enjoy. His work, his imagination and designs are not only the most unique and bizarre creations in all of comicdom...but his ability to change styles, and rendering techniques is remarkable. There is much to be learned from viewing of Moebius's work. His pen and ink style is often imitated, and his designs often as well.

I think the main inspiration for me is his strange genius, his amazing ink work, and his chameleon like skill. One's first reaction might be "weird!", but it's how he tells the story that lends credibility to all his weird worlds.

Also, his conceptual work has been used in movies like Tron, Bladerunner, The Fifth Element, Alien, The Abyss, Willow, Heavy Metal, and Masters of the Universe among others. Alongside people like Syd Mead and Ralph MacQuarrie in terms of conceptual art pioneers.

s'all I got.

I'll never forget flipping through copies of Heavy Metal long before I should have been able to read that stuff (like 10 years old I mean) and landing on his work and just staring at it for hours on end. Getting lost in his line work and his use of color. His work is always so well balanced and feels so perfect.

Moebius had to be one of the first artists I knew by name, and could recognize by style.

The Long Tomorrow was a big inspiration for my favorite film, Blade Runner.
