The world of fantasy art loses another great this week
« on: March 12, 2012, 04:07:21 PM »
Los Angeles - legendary and seminal fantasy artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud has passed away at age 73 following an unsuccessful battle with cancer. Best known for his hapless aeronaut character Arzach and his unnamed perodactyl-like 'steed', his quirky and vaguely Art Nouveau style will be greatly missed.

Good-bye Jean. With our deepest thanks and best wishes for your voyage to new worlds of wonder.
