“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

FOR MIKE_90 minutes






"Look to the west, young man - and be not afraid... for there lies the land of your brothers. And you are one of us."

MIKE WIERINGO passed away three years ago today. These are his characters. They're fun to draw. I'd like to thank him for creating them.
