Winter is the coldest season of the year in temperate climates, between autumn and spring. At the winter solstice, the days are shortest and the nights are longest, with days lengthening as the season progresses after the solstice.

Jean Giraud was born outside Paris in Nogent-sur-Marne in May 1938

Accepted to the Institute of Applied Arts in l954, Giraud became a professional cartoonist during his sophomore year, landing a number of sketches in several publications.

Giraud took his earnings from cartooning and ran off to Mexico where he found a new passion: the science fiction of Asimov, Bradbury, Heinlein and A.E. Van Vogt, with whom he immediately felt a strong connection.

In 1963, a colleague recommended Giraud to Pilote co-founder Jean-Michel Charlier, who wanted to add an entirely new type of strip to the magazine’s stable. Initially called Fort Navajo, Gir’s strip featured the first French comic-book anti-hero: Lt. Mike Steve Blueberry.

In 1974, he joined three others (Phillippe Druillet, Jean-Pierre Dionnet and Bernard Farkas) in founding Les Humanoïdes Associés. Their first collaborative publication, Métal Hurlant, was brought out in January 1975 and changed comics forever.

Métal Hurlant comic art merged neo-Romantic fantasy, science fiction and underground comix techniques. Emphasizing complex graphics, cinematic imagery and surreal storylines, it was visionary and introduced a slate of brand-new, fully wrought Moebius characters, including Major Fatal, Arzach and John Difool (scripted by filmmaker Alexandro Jodorowsky).

Jean Giraud has collaborated in films such as Alien, Tron, The Abyss, and The Fifth Element

The idea is to depict objetcs and characters from times which represent the starting point of a new technological era. For instance:

- Birth of cinema:

Birth of steam locomotive, etc.

This could be a good topic for a stop-motion short film.
