A blog exploring the work of Jean Henri Gaston Giraud(1938 - 2012) , aka Gir, aka Moebius.
[The official site of Moebius] - While there aren't many of his works available to an English-only audience, the last thing I want to do is take away from potential sales by hosting his work here. If you speak French and can enjoy his books the way they were originally meant to be enjoyed, please click over and show him and his publishers some love.
Premiering at this year’s Cannes film festival will be a documentary called Jodorowsky’s Dune, which chronicles the infamous failed production involving Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, Pink Floyd, HR Giger, and of course Moebius. The article is a little unclear as to the form this documentary will take, but there will deinfitely be interviews with Jodo and, I can only assume, Moebius.
Ignorant of the facts, I mentioned something about controversy involving Moebius and his design work for Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element. I have heard rumors involving a lawsuit, but I have no idea where they came from. These have nothing to do with Moebius, who was a designer for the film, and I apologize for the rumor mongering.
I love The Fifth Element, and I’m so happy that I’ve got some of Moebius’ production art to post here now.
