This is an extremely rare and sought after print paying homage to the late great Jimi Hendrix. The print showcases a cross between Moebius's incredible landscapes and his science fiction characters, and re-affirms his place as a master of perspective and story telling. Note the lone figure walking with a guitar strapped across his back.
Moebius was asked in 1975 to make an illustration for the cover of an upcoming compilation album with the first 2 records by the Jimi Hendrix Experience; Are You Experienced and Axis: Bold As Love. The artist chose one photo from a set he received, depicting Hendrix as he was eating. Moebius' artistic rendition became the cover of the reissue and has become an iconic image of Hendrix throughout the years.
The photo was made in Brussels in 1967 by Jean-Noël Coghe.
