I see you're posting lots of submissions lately [mostly concerning that panel from the apple pie] I'm just curious - does any of them include name of the author since it's kinda hard to figure it out,esp. when they're not signed? I assume the authors would also like their name to be seen on your blog:]
keep up the good work!
Wow, thank you for pointing this out. When someone submits an Apple Pie cover and I post it, it shows up on my dash as being posted by the source tumblr page. Apparently that is not the case for the rest of you? I’ve gone through and made sure all of the entries have click-through links to their sources. People haven’t really been giving me their names, but if you want your name to show up on your entry here, let me know and I’ll edit them in.
Thank you again for pointing this out to me. This humble tumblr n00b is a little more enlightened now.
About Moebius and the 5th element, I think he worked on the blue alien opera singer (I know there is a drawing somewhere on this) and maybe on a spaceship but most of the art has been made by Mezieres (even if you can feel a huuuge influence by bilal as well)
I’ve heard similar from a few people now. Thanks for the response, and I’m happy to know what was up. The lawsuit rumors must have been just that.
the internet's outta control! Unless that's Moebius himself, how's dude gonna tell you to credit images that aren't even his. WTF. Keep up the excellent tumblr!
I assume because this person scanned the images personally. I can kind of understand that, because without doing so you would not have these pretties to look at. Some of what I put up here comes from such sources, found online. Most of what I put up here comes from crazy huge amounts of .cbrs I’ve got on my computer, which someone had to scan in for us to see them. There are only a few things that I’ve scanned myself. So yeah, if dude wants credit, sure. That’s fine.
Hi, you're using a lot of the images of my blog http://jacq-jacquin.blogspot.com/
can you say it on your posts, thanks.
Actually, I had never been to your site before. It’s very possible that images I’ve found online originally came from your blog. I do see that you’ve got some stuff I don’t have, and am more than happy to plug you when I post them in future.
Not a question, but since it was asked earlier - for what it's worth the Transept-forme exhibition had a couple of Fifth Element concept pieces, specifically of the opera singer (alongside concept art for The Abyss and Space Jam). I'd have taken photos, but alas that was a no-no (still managed to sneakily take one, though).
So he did produce concept work for the film! Thanks for clarifying!
I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your page; I had been looking for something like it for quite a while. I was writing because I saw your post of the Keith Richards drawing and couldn't help but notice a resemblance to a drawing that Jean did on the signature plate of the Jimi Hendrix portfolio that I ordered from Stardom years ago. Would you you be interested in seeing it? I think that I may have a few images that I've saved that you might have as well. I have a page here on tumblr as well and perhaps you could give it a small plug in exchange for the images. Keep up the great work!
Oh wow, I would love to see anything you’ve got. I was just talking with a friend the other night about the elusiveness of Moebius’ series of Jimi illustrations. I’ve put one or two up here, but have only found very tiny files of anything else. In fact, this image is only half of the entire piece, but I put it up anyway because I couldn’t find a completed one.
Anything you can send will be greatly appreciated, and I will definitely plug you!
Hi, I don't have a question, but I wanted to tell you that your doing a very good thing here and I appreciate it very much. Thanks,
You’re welcome, Connor! Dude, I’m a big fan of yours. Everyone, check out the amazing work Connor Willumsen is doing on his website. I especially love his serialized comic, Everett. He inspires me in my own attempts at making comics.
