Moebius - the Picasso/Matisse of sci-fi illustration. Plus I grew up on a steady dose of the "Blueberry" western comics he also did. I like the pink girlie-colors on this one. :-) much of his comics-work is sadly unavailable in English, allegedly due to his widow being weird, old and stubborn or something. But the scans of his paintings are floating around on the internet.
Qalupalik is an Inuit mythological creature. It is a human-like creature that lives in the sea, with long hair, green skin, and long fingernails. The myth is that qalupaliks wear an amautiit (a form of pouch that Inuit parents wear to carry their children) so they can take babies and children away who disobey their parents.

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain..." Roy Batty
