More Appreciation for Moebius

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 28, 2012
Going through a few old folders of inspiration this morning, and we were reminded of the great loss we have earlier this year in French illustrator Jean Giraud, aka Moebius.

Here is just a selection of classic works...

Lucy Evans Illustration

Illustration // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
'My work is about the viewer being able to lose themselves in a moment of fascination and curiosity. To be mesmerised by a combination of intricate mark making and surreal conceptual content.

Michael Olivo?!

Illustration // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
I'm not sure what to say about the work of Oakland, CA based Michael Olivo, but I like it. He creates these hideously vibrant messes of color and form, sometimes resembling epic wrestling matches with alien creatures stricken with some life-eating skin mutations. They're rich, exciting, and well, I can't say that I am not automatically attracted to them, in some strange way...
