FOR ADAM

Right-click for supes enlargement. 

Click here to download all 7 pages in a PDF.
Some people have been asking where they can get a copy of this comic. Sorry, but is a wholly digital creation. Ink has never touched paper! If you right click on the above images, you can download and print them out if you want to make your own Sabotage comic. They are hi-rez enough that they should still be 150 dpi if printed out at standard comic book size: 6.875"x10.5" (although anything that's printed and folded - double sided - needs pages in multiples of 4, I don't know what you're going to do with the extra blank page. I'd recommend putting it inside the front cover - a dedication page! For your autograph collection). Print 'em, give 'em to friends, enemies, strangers - whatever you want. Hide them on buses or throw them into the windows of passing cop cars. Please don't sell them. This is a tribute to Adam Yauch; it's not for you or I to profit from financially. Peace!

BRUTHA-TUT REDUX

Actually revisiting a school project from 2 years ago. Interesting to take some time and get it closer to what was in my head at the time.

WHITHER MOEBIUS



It's been a week since the death of Jean "Moebius" Giraud. He was arguably the best living artist (by which I mean "creator", as he rarely worked with other writers) using comics as a medium. Which may sound like damning with faint praise, but the public perception of comics, especially in North America, is limited. Kind of like thinking Fast Five or Transformers represent what movies are, or are capable of.

In France his death was front page news. There has been an outpouring of accolades from around the world by artists, writers, filmmakers etc of every stripe. His influence can be (easily) seen in the work of others, in comics, film, video games; there's probably stuff you like which you weren't even aware owe him a debt. I said to someone last week: "Attempting to collate his influence would be an endless exercise in futility. He has been absolutely crushing it for 50 years. Peerless." 


Lines and Colors post observing his passing, featuring his artwork.

Quenched Conciousness is a blog dedicated to his artwork. It is awesome; it is vast.

Remembrances by people in his industry.

A look at some work for film and gaming.

Here's a blog where artists have been posting work in tribute.

Images of last year's 5 month Moebius exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art Contemporain in Paris.

The Comics Reporter's roundup of industry reaction to the death of Moebius.

Some video:





"We artists can only go so far as the people can follow us. We are not alone, we are part of the system. We can take risks, but if you want to go to the peak of your consciousness, you may very well find yourself alone. Even if you know how to translate what you see, maybe only ten people will be able to understand what you tell. But, if you have faith in your vision, and retell it again and again, you will start noticing that, after a time, more people will begin to catch up with you."

"They said that I changed their life, ‘You changed my life. Your work is why I became an artist.’ Oh, it makes me happy. But you know at same time I have an internal broom to clean it all up. It can be dangerous to believe it. Someone wrote, ‘Moebius is a legendary artist.’... A legend — now I am like a unicorn."

People never really got over his work. I doubt they'll get over his death.

BRICK DUDE

My young friend Emmerson sent me this awesome drawing he did of a robot.
I thought it kind of looked like a brick guy in the forest, so i sent him this back.
