Quenched Consciousness curator Ian MacEwan is doing a career chronology for Moebius/Jean Giraud: “Instead of a memorial entry(because I feel weird about it), I started a series of career timeline posts,” he wrote.
From the first entry, featuring art from 1958:
Over the next week, I’m going to focus on posting pieces of Giraud’s work in chronological order. Ideally, there will be at least one post of something that he drew for every year of his professional career. My hope is to give a clear and thorough presentation that will help give people(myself included) a better understanding of Jean Giraud’s life work. To that end, if any of you find that I am missing something, I would love to hear from you. So far, I am missing a few key things from his early years. Primarily, any of his work on a western strip called Frank et Jeremie for Far West Magazine, and any work he did for the French Army magazine 5/5 Forces Françaises, while serving in Algeria.
