French artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud has passed. He was a master of stippling, wordless storytelling, and inspiration to countless comic artists the world over. His use of negative space and scale gave his otherworldly characters weight within their truly alien surroundings.

One of the few sequential artists to cross over into the world of fine art, his designs can be seen in films like Alien, TRON, Willow, Little Nemo in Slumberland, The Abyss, and Fifth Element.
