Your monthly dose of Moebius

In case you aren't following Quenched Consciousness:

Moebius Un ange depasse
Un ange dépasse (An angel above) (1997)


QC also pointed to an interesting analysis of Moebius' attention to technical detail. Particularly fascinating are the examples of his use of perspective lines and vanishing points. There's a reason his drawings look so strangely realistic even at their most fantastical. Craig Smith, who has always proclaimed his admiration of the Blueberry strips, might appreciate this tidbit: "[Moebius] estimated once that he spent 80% of his time drawing the technically rigorous Blueberry comics, and 20% on his fanciful stuff; he also said Blueberry required more concentration and technical facility."

Maybe I'm the last person to figure this out, but did the artist adopt the nom de plume of Moebius because he worked on bandes dessinées, so that his were "Moebius strips"?

I don't think I've heard an origin story for the name, other than that Giraud wanted a fanciful name for his more fanciful work, so your theory is as good as any!

nom de plume
I know he told a lot of explanations about this nickname, for example one was "I like the Πletter" and one of these was: "I draw twisted strips." TK

name
Even for Moebius, it's difficult to explain the origin of the name. He probably read the name in SF novels he liked very much when he was young.
