Gosh, thanks, that’s super nice of you to say! My inspirations are frequent and far spread, but historically I’m a big fan of Egon Schiele, Gustav Dore, Hiroshi Yoshida, Mary Cassatt, and Käthe Kollwitz’s drawings and prints. 90% of my inspiration comes from my classmates and friends, and a ton of it also comes from contemporary working illustrators of which there are far too many to name! A few people I keep up with are Sam Vanellemeersch, Dadu Shin, Sam Bosma, Nemo Ramjet, Jonathan Djob Nkondo, Mortis Ghost, Tom Scholes, Richie Pope, and Wesley Allsbrook. Look those guys up, they’re great!
I don’t read a whole lot of comics, but I’m just now falling in love with Dave McKean’s work, and some print series that have stuck with me are Locke and Key, Blankets, V for Vendetta, The Veil, Bone, and Nonplayer. Also, anything KC Green makes and his webcomic Gunshow!
