“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

OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!_commission

[11 x 14" - blue pencil, brush & technical pen, COPIC marker on 100lb/300series bristol board]

It will not happen again, this GEISEL. He, like a small group of others, came and left an astounding mark with voice, pen and humor - then left a dream we could all share and live in.

I am luckier for having grown up with and lived through that dream.

I believe we all are.
