Influence Maps!

Postby AndreiB on Mon Nov 08, 2010 9:33 am

Okay so this is a rehash of a popular topic in another forum... INFLUENCE MAPS!
Create a great map that instantly expresses all your artwork or writing influences in one handy jpeg. Then post it!
It's a good way to build awareness of your favourite influences and discover style-shaping experiences from fellow creators! I'm really curious as to who everyone decides to place on their map.

*Make it look exciting.
*Influences listed don't have to be comic artists... but it helps.
*Your parents don't count.
*Keep it under 30, it's a map, not an atlas.
*Stick it on your blog so interviewers don't ask questions about your influences. It's there already - do yr research!

Here's mine! *sticks out belly, shoots rainbow*

This is a great idea. I've been meaning to do one myself for some time.

So here's my extremely overcrowded influence map, it was hard to keep the list down.

Aaargh, I'm hitting myself in the head because I forgot all about Winsor McCay! Nice choice!

Indeed, the man was a God!

It was really difficult just narrowing it down to the influences I had on this map, there's a lot more that I've neglected to include.
