Moebius Jean Gir Giruaud has Passed, March, 2012

"Moebius (Jean Giraud) was a great artist. One of those rare artists who could draw on a whim, extremely fast, accurate, and with style.

I met him as a young man in San Diego and I was impressed with his flowing pen. I met him again half a dozen times throughout the years, including a rare appearance at an exhibit at the University of the Pacific (UOP) where I was able to speak with him for some time.

He contributed the art to the inside back cover of an educational comic, and his art also appeared on the cover of the first issue of Chilam Balam."

When I first met him he was interested in my Mexica (Azteca) background. He had traveled to Mexico as a young man.
