    Hey Mr. Greer,

    Yeah, this guy is insane, huh? He might be able to give Moebius feelings of inadequacy. (Although that’s clearly the starting point.) It was so hard for me to narrow it down to a reasonable number of his images. I’m going to put a bibliography category with links to ordering all the books I mention, but I can’t recommend “Nira Works” highly enough to anyone involved in character design.

    Thank you so much for all the links over at your blog. It’s so nice to know that industry professionals find this relevant.
