City of Fire illustration



Illustration from City of Fire. Pencils by Geof Darrow and Moebius inking and colors. I have had this piece for a number of years. When I first got it, I was not sure if it was 100% original or not. The colors are original. There are pencil marks on the piece. The inks are so delicate that it is hard to tell if they are printed or actual inks, even under a big magnifying glass. When I first got the piece, I was told it was colored by Arno but I have not seen that credit anywhere else. I have recently been told that Moebius did the inks and colors on this. If that is the case, I would think the inks would be original too. Regardless, a beautiful illustration by two comic greats.

About Moebius

Jean Henri Gaston Giraud was a French artist, cartoonist and writer who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées (BD) tradition. Giraud garnered worldwide acclaim predominantly under the pseudonym Mœbius and to a lesser extent Gir which he used for the Blueberry series and his Western themed paintings. Esteemed by Federico Fellini, Stan Lee and Hayao Miyazaki among others, he has been described as the most influential bandes dessinées artist after Hergé. His most famous works include the series Blueberry, created with writer Jean-Michel Charlier, featuring one of the first anti-heroes in Western comics. As Mœbius he created a wide range of science fiction and fantasy comics in a highly imaginative, surreal, almost abstract style. These works include Arzach and the Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius. He also collaborated with avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky for an unproduced adaptation of Dune and the comic book series The Incal. Mœbius also contributed storyboards and concept designs to numerous science fiction and fantasy films, such as Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element and The Abyss. Blueberry was adapted for the screen in 2004 by French director Jan Kounen.
