Moebius AKA Jean-Giraud Portrait 2010

Ok so this is something of a re-post lifted from the excellent designboom.com. Re-posting content in such verbatim fashion is something In which I tend to shy away from, but since it concerns quite possibly the worlds premier Sci-Fi Illustrator I’ve made an exception! We are of course talking of French comic artist/legend Jean Giraud, better known as Moebius and this article relates to his current exhibition “Transe-Forme” which is running now at Fondation Cartier in Paris until Saturday the 13th March, 2011. So as of time posting you have roughly a month too experience it.

Read the full article over at DesignBoom with a much larger selection of images of this simply stunning exhibition.

Many thanks to Manchester based Illustrator/Designer Ben Lamb for originally pointing me towards the article…

  1. The exhibition does indeed look amazing. Mildly envious of French culture being able to confidently stage such expansive exhibitions on comic book artists/illustrators in the same way as it would fine artists.
    Any tips out there on where to start with picking up affordable english-language collections of Moebius’s work?
