The Heavy Metal Booth


An unused illustration for an article I wrote about the Lucca, Italy comics festival for Heavy Metal back in 1981.

    I remember the illustration of the gargoyle and, of course, Moebius – wearing a jumper ( sweater ) with some olympics thing on it…Moscow? I take it you got to talk with him? Any insights?

    Was fortunate to spend an afternoon roaming the ancient streets of Lucca with Jean. Was impressed how carefully he studied the architectural details of the structures. He had also just begun a strict diet so at the restaurants all week he would order a simple plate of raw spinach while the rest of us went crazy in the Northern Italian cuisine.
