Ownership is the highest form of appreciation!
I also managed and was the creative director of the
AKIBOARDS female techno-band. The '80s were like that.
Boy.....the 20th century rocked!!!!!"

I tried to explain to him that most art directors, critics and curators were not ready for me or my more sophisticated Rhythmistic work. Even though they were impacted by its power, beauty & appeal. He didn't understand those types of ism-schism politics that decided who gets the bigger jobs and who will not. I presented my work. This included characters, concepts and illustrations. I was so ready for this moment. We exchanged a few words. I left in reflection of that point. If you dare to be great, it helps to meet great people. He was great!
I had always wanted to establish an multimedia publishing house and felt seeing their operation, I now experienced a working template. Not the downtown model. But one funky and urbane. Theirs was a Euro-French movement. Mine is Black-Rhythmistic. After that I later returned to Chicago. Published the creative arts' 'zines Papers, then Future Funk and next NOG: The Protector of the Pyramides thus launching the growing Black Age of Comics Movement. Last year Moebius had a retrospective exhibition at the Cartier Foundation in Paris. I sent him a few recent copies of Future Funk along with a note thanking him for is amazing life as and artist & publisher. Unfortunately, Moebius died in early March of 2012 at age 73. He will be missed.
I wish his family, friends, fans, and legacy the best."
