Many times when Bob Camp and I get together, we wind up exchanging stories about living and working in Los Angeles. Some are funny, some are horrible, and some are star-studded. At some point, we got to talking about Heavy Metal Magazine — the great stuff in the late 70’s and early 80s. And you can’t mention that period without getting to Moebius.
“I went to his studio in Santa Monica with some friends. He was working on Airtight Garage. Watching him draw was amazing!” recalled Bob. “I showed him my portfolio. He seemed to really like my work. He looked at one drawing and said “it’s beautiful, how do you do it?” I said easy I copy you! ”
Bob said he met up with Moebius again, not long after. “He was living in Venice Beach. I stopped by his house and he invited us in. I assumed he remembered me but I realized he probably didn’t. Never the less he was gracious and we had a nice visit.”
