Proof that I have not read nearly enough great comics.

A collection of my primary visual influences.  This is a neat meme; I found it interesting to really sit down and figure out what artists or other sources have had the most impact on my style.


I figured I’d reblog my old visual influence map, as I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it lately.  Here’s a breakdown:
Moebius - French cartooning legend and my personal comics hero.
Alessandro Barbucci & Barbara Canepa - Amazing duo best known for Sky Doll.
Fritz Lang - Director of Metropolis, M, & so much more- titan of German Expressionism
Chris Appelhans - Cartoonist & concept designer on Coraline & Monster House.
Barnaby Ward - Author of the amazing graphic novel Sixteen Miles to Merricks.
Shaun Tan - Writer & illustrator of The Arrival.
Hayao Miyazaki - Director of Nausicaa, Princess Mononoke and much more.
Pierre Alary - French cartoonist probably best known for Belladonne.

David Hellman - Artist behind the videogame Braid and the webcomic A Lesson is Learned.
Ralph McQuarrie - Principal artist & designer for the original Star Wars trilogy.
Roger Dean - Painter & illustrator, best known for his Yes progressive rock album covers.
James Gurney - Author & illustrator of Dinotopia.
Panzer Dragoon - Probably my favorite video game, from the Sega Saturn way back when.
Mike Mignola - American cartoonist & creator of Hellboy.
Enrique Fernandez - Amazing artist & illustrator, possibly best known for his adaptation of The Wizard of Oz and his own work L’île Sans Sourire. Currently working on Brigada.
