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 at 8pm with a party to follow.
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
