The Airtight Garage is now closed.
Au revoir Jean Giraud. Like many other American kids in the 70s, I came across the work of Moebius in Heavy Metal magazine. Aside from the immaculately detailed renderings, what struck me then and now about his work was the way everything seemed organically and completely developed. As Geoff Boucher so rightly puts it:
The subtle paradox that tugs at the eye of his audience is that
everything portrayed — the landscapes, denizens, technologies and even
physics — is totally alien but also completely unified in presentation
and rendered with the confident precision of a surveyor who has walked
every inch of a property.
That's something to aspire to as a writer.
