Three by Moebius

Here’s a little “art appreciation” exercise with three images by the great Jean Giraud, a.k.a. Moebius. Look closely at the first two to note the differences, not only due to the change from black-and-white to color but also the subtle alterations to the drawing itself. And then compare to the third image which represents a sequential movement. (Click images to enlarge.)

The black-and-white image is from Moebius’s 2008 graphic novel Chasseur déprime (literally Depressed Hunter, but also a play on the term chasseur de prix, bounty hunter).

The color images were created for two limited edition digigraphie prints based on the book and sold through the official Moebius website.
