Influence Map by Roboworks Influence Map by Roboworks
I've been seeing these Influence Maps every where and thought it would be fun to explore my own, but in a slightly different way.

These are the people whose work makes up the core of everything I project onto the page. It's hard to imagine my work without them.

You guys named most of them, but here's an official guide.
1: Mike Mignola / Adam Hughes / Will Eisner / Bernie Wrightson
2: Brian Stelfreeze / Michael Golden / Mark Silvestri / Richard Corben
3: Dave Stevens / David Fincher / Frank Miller / Jean Giraud "moebius
4: Claire Wendling / Miles Gunter / Koji Morimoto / John McTiernan
5: Stanley Kubrick / Olivier Vatine / Steven Spielberg / Satoshi Kon
6: Dave Johnson / Jim Lee / Katsuhiro Otomo / Chuck Jones


<--- OK, anyone else having a problem with this stupid preview thing over here? It covers the description and art. I can never read what's under it! How do I get rid of it?

(Thanks to Dusty for the Map! I just ripped yours off. :) HAHA!

Too little love for Olivier Vatine going around. Good of you to remedy that.

Now, I get to stop thumbing through old dog-eared Body bags comics.

Did you see the X-Force . . . annual he did with Kirkman? THAT was awesome.

Well, I didn't want the Frankie that directed The Spirit, I wanted Daredevil Frankie. :)

I'll be real impressed if anyone can name the ones you didn't. You got Otomo, that was a hard one!

Vatine? Oh man, good one! I LOVED his Star Wars, Zahn adaptation and my OLD old Aquablue trades. You know anything about new stuff from him? That would be awesome.

If you can only name one, I'm glad it's the Mig! I think he's the first guy I associated with a particular style. At the time I thought the Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlin way was the standard. Well, I guess it was. :)

Oh, I know some others but they've been mentioned (who doesn't love Eisner and Moebius for example?) But yeah, Mig was the first comic artist who's work I looked at and was surprised how much it stood out!

Which ones do you know? I figure a couple would be really tough. I'll reveal them all soon, I just want to give everyone a shot. That's why I posted their pictures. Chances are you know the work. It's important to me to also know the artist. :)

Let's see, I'll do what I know, from left to right starting at top, going down..
ROW 1:
Mike Mignola
Adam Hughes
No idea
Bernie Wrightson
ROW 2:
Brian Stelfreeze
Mike Golden
Marc Silvesti
BAH - I know, but I forget
ROW 3:
No idea
No idea
Frank Miller
No idea
ROW 4 - Recognize 2, forgot names
ROW 5:
No idea
No idea
Steven Spielberg
No idea
ROW 6:
Dave Johnson
Jim Lee
Forget
Forget

Yeah, 10 names I'm positive on, a few I recognize but can't recall names, I'm sure if you said it, pop I'd remember. Some though, no clue, that is unless I saw the art, that I'm sure would change the list, heh!
Anyway, let me, let "us" know if you're up to that! ;)

uhm... Adam Hughes, Jerome K Moore? Richard Corben, Claire Wendling, Stanley Kubrick? Steven Spielberg, ...Satoshi Kon?

Maybe I'm failing at some of them, lol

And I'm sure I know the face of the sepia-pic japanese guy, but I've rarely seen the japanese directors photos so I don't remember = (

you made it tough!
