Influence Map

Here is my Influence Map of most of the people who have been an influence in my art and continue to be my inspiration. Mostly Old school, some new school. There it is.

Marshall Vandruff would refer these to be 'Touchtones'. If I were to pick just the 'Old Masters' (from this list), they would just be:
*N.C. Wyeth
*Mead Schaeffer
*John Singer Sargent
*J.C. Leyendecker
*Norman Rockwell
*Stanislav Szukalski

These are my artistic inspirations besides the obvious ones like Life experiences, Nature, Animals, Humans, Music, Dance, Culture, Science, Wonders of the World, etc...

*oh yeah, can't forget about Craig Mullins, one of the pioneers of digital art. AND... Ron Cobb, Syd Mead, Moebius, Ralph McQuarrie, Kazuo Oga, Wendling, & Barbucci+Canepa.

Here's the original template(from Deviantart) that you can use to make your own:

Very Cool! I need to make one of these! It's a great way to really understand ourselves as artists and individuals.
