    Default Jean Henri Gaston Giraud/Moebius Comics

    "Jean Henri Gaston Giraud (8 May 1938 – 10 March 2012) was a French artist, cartoonist and writer who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées (BD) tradition. Giraud garnered worldwide acclaim under the pseudonym Moebius, as well as Gir outside the English-speaking world, used for the Blueberry series—his most successful creation in the non-English speaking parts of the world—and his Western themed paintings. Esteemed by Federico Fellini, Stan Lee and Hayao Miyazaki among others,he has been described as the most influential bandes dessinées artist after Hergé.

    His most famous works include the series Blueberry, created with writer Jean-Michel Charlier, featuring one of the first anti-heroes in Western comics. As Mœbius he created a wide range of science fiction and fantasy comics in a highly imaginative, surreal, almost abstract style. These works include Arzach and the Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius. He also collaborated with avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky for an unproduced adaptation of Dune and the comic book series The Incal.

    Mœbius also contributed storyboards and concept designs to numerous science fiction and fantasy films, such as Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element and The Abyss. Blueberry was adapted for the screen in 2004 by French director Jan Kounen."

    An evening with “Moebius” A CTN exclusive special event (2010)
    (1:53:46 hrs.)
    "Legendary French comic artist Moebius speaks on an exclusive panel moderated by Director John Musker with special surprise guests at the CTN Animation Expo on November 20th, 2010
    Jean Giraud “Moebius” – A once in a lifetime opportunity to see the genius behind the talent of this internationally recognized artist. Jean Giraud’s work has profoundly influenced the worlds of science fiction, animation, publicity, 3D imagery and video games for over thirty years. His drawings have also attracted the attention of great filmmakers including Luc Besson’s 5th Element, James Cameron’s Abyss, Steven Lisberger’s Tron and Ridley Scott’s Alien among many others.
    Like the Moebius strip, whose two ends fold together to form a one-sided loop, the artist sees his identity as dual. Known as both Gir and Moebius these dual pseudonyms reflect his own shifting artistic identity resulting in a variety of fully realized styles, from the detailed realism of Blueberry, to the dreamlike drawings of Arzach.
    “Going from Giraud to Moebius, I twisted the strip, changed dimensions, I was the same and yet someone else. Moebius is the result of my duality.” ~Jean Giraud
    Having not been in the United States for over 15 years “An Evening with Moebius” is a rare exclusive opportunity to see and hear from this internationally recognized artist. Now less than 70 days away this once in a lifetime opportunity has limited seating and is designed to promote an intimate “special event” atmosphere that includes moderated interview, presentation, drawing demonstration along with surprise special guests. All attendees are invited to the cocktail reception directly following the event.
    One Time Only – A very special evening!
