French artist Jean Giraud aka Moebius has been a huge influence on me for as long as I can remember. Copies of Metal Hurlant that I came across as a kid visiting France blew my mind, and I bought and consumed everything I could find by him as soon as I learnt the name. His masterwork Le Garage Hermétique remains my favorite of his comics. It’s tremendously inventive – an improvised tour-de-force written over a few years, constantly transforming and exploring every genre Moebius ever worked in.
For the past few years I’ve been working on an album of music that is a tribute to the artist and this incredible comic. This is my attempt at a visual tribute, and a cover for the album!
