Moebius' Tron Art

Moebius is a pseudonym for the French artist, Jean Giraud.  He's famous for his work as a comic artist but also for his work as a concept artist for feature films like Alien, Masters of the Universe, Willow, The Fifth Element and Tron.

Moebius is often referred to as a "futurist."  His art displays an amazing knack for making the fantastic seem plausible.  Here are some images of production art he did for Tron (1982).
I think my favourite piece is the design for Sark.  Obviously, more than a little of Moebius' influence found its way into the finished costumes.
