Moebius aka Jean Giraud Speed Drawing

Moebius was one of the best comic artists ever. He died this year, and there has been a huge amount of attention paid to his lifetime of incredible work as an artist, illustrator, comic artist, et cetera, and for good reason. For instance, I found this video on dailymotion of Moebius drawing one of his characters, Malvina from The Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius (Le Garage Hermétique de Jerry Cornelius) using graphics software and a tablet. Just check out these stills. It’s crazy!

A master at work; the mind boggles. There’s a bunch more videos on the Fondation Cartier website.
