French artist Jean Giraud, better known as Moebius to his fans, died today.
His work had a profound influence on a huge number of filmmakers and comic book artists. Moebius did the set and costume design for Tron, and though he didn't work on Blade Runner directly, his work had a great influence on that film as well. His short story comic The Long Tomorrow — a film noir set in the future, written by Dan O'Bannon and illustrated by Moebius in 1975 — quite obviously had an impact on Ridley Scott's Blade Runner.
BBC Four produced a documentary about Moebius in 2007 titled In Search of Moebius. It's presented in three parts below.
