I’m not sure you could find a better Jean Giraud (aka: Moebius, aka: awesome) tribute still working today. Or ever. These pieces are mind blowing, and not just in the sheer detail involved in each piece (I recommend visiting his blog simply to see the close-up shots of these pieces. They are tiny, finished compositions each and ever one), but the scale, dedication, and awareness each piece has. There is a cohesion between the massive amounts of details, lines, colors, shapes, and ideas. It all clicks together in one big sci-fi world filled with robots, owls, and warriors. The way he handles the rendering of objects is so inspired by Moebius that at some times its hard to tell its NOT one of his pieces. The wavy lines, the staccato marks and nouveau designs all swirl together to make a modern day master piece that I believe Giraud would be proud of, if not amazed by. While Eng currently seems to be content to work commercially, doing DVD menus, album covers and silk screen prints (yes, I know, some of these ARE silk screen prints – try not to let your head explode), I’ll be (im)patiently awaiting the day he decides to shift into narrative story telling with comics and animation.
