The illustrations here are from the book ”悪魔のいる天国” (“Satan is in Heaven”) by science fiction writer Shinich Hoshi and it was first published as a novella by Tokyo Hayakawa Books in 1973. The artist is Hiroshi Manabe. Rigid, geometric figures in grid-structered spatial compositions build scenes that are instantly poignant and alluring. There’s an almost unsettling sentiment in these illustrations that lets them stand on their own, the story can be disregarded (even though it’s very good).
I strive to attain these kinds of aesthetics in my work. They are endlessly gorgeous and inspirational, I pick up this book at least once a month to marvel.

In two weeks, (halloween weekendish, oct 26-27) we are going to have a horror-comics workshop in conjunction wit LAVA and Serieteket in stockholm. It’s 50 kronor. send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be in on it. It’s going to be very scary so don’t cry.
If I was in Stockholm, I’d consider going to this.

Two photos of one of Moebius’ unused original Incal pages, from someone’s private collection. So great to see how much white-out he uses, and how he redid the last panel before scrapping the whole thing entirely and drawing the one that was printed.
