Paul Bonner, James Jean, Iain Mccaig,
I have a deep appreciation of the elusive and subjective quality, beauty. That is what I seek in all objects regardless of their origin. I take fully as much joy in viewing another artist's work as I do my own. Therefore I could not begin to enumerate the artists whose work I appreciate and who have influenced me positively.
Georges Ferdinand Bigot (French cartoonist) his works criticize Japanese in d of 1800's, but they are funny. His works gave a gig influence to my works.
I love beautiful lines and details of Aubrey Vincent Beardsley's works.
I love showing humanity in both of artists' works.
N.C. Wyeth, J.C. Lyendecker, Andy Warhol, Frank Frazetta, to name a few.
They influence me with their thinking and technique.
My original inspiration came from the work of Garth Williams. Other heroes are Chris Van Allsburg, Maurice Sendak, Paul O. Zelinsky, etc.
norman Rockwell, Bob Ross, Alex Ross and Jim Lee.
Hayao Miyazaki for his ability to distill emotion and sensation and make it almost 100% relatable. Ryan Ottley for his clean, dynamic lines. Kazu Kibuishi for the sweetness of his stories and the sheer gorgeousness of his colors. Jhonen Vasquez (although I'm occasionally loathe to admit it) for making comics accessible to me in the first place.
I love Maxfield Parrish. He has an amazing use of color in his work. His landscapes tell a story about the beauty in nature. I also love the humor that Norman Rockwell injects into his work.
Frank Frazetta and H.R. Giger are my two biggest influences. Frank Frazetta was able to balance family and career while turning out top quality work. Every time I look at H.R. Gigerís work I see something different.
Hopper, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Botero
These artists, although quite different from each other capture the figure in such amazing ways.
Even though I don't think it's all that evident in my work, the biggest influences on me have been Frank Miller, David Mazzuchelli, Dave Gibbons, Alan Moore, Chris Ware, John Steinbeck, Thomas Keneally and more historians than I can name.
They can use a pencil!!!
Andy Warhol. Michael Schwab, Stan Lee, Paul Rogers, Michael Doret...
I guess the biggest influence is their ability to view type treatments as an art form.
Frieda Kahlo, Georgia O'Keefe, Elizabeth Catlett, Emily Carr, Klimt, all the Mexican Muralists, Leo & Diane Dillon, Jerry Pinkney, and I get influence just by reading about them and viewing their work.
I'm very fond of Rockwell and Mucha's work.
