Jean Giraud aka Moebius (1938-2012)

"The pioneering comic book creator and movie concept artist Moebius, aka Jean Giraud, aka Gir, has passed away at the age of 73."

Though not to everyone's taste (very European style i'd argue) he produced concept art for Alien, Willow, the Panzer Dragoon game series and Alejandro Jodorowsky's cancelled version of Dune. He's probably more famous in Europe thanks to his Western comic book series Blueberry co-created with Jean-Michel Charlier.
