    Just thought it'd be fun to see what artists are influencing other artists or even non-artists or those creatives somewhere between the two. So favorite and most influential artists for you at the moment. I'll start it off:

    NC Wyeth
    Maxwell Parish
    James Jean
    Alphonse Mucha
    Mike Mignola
    Chris Bachalo
    Gustave Doré

    Well that's at least a start.

    What have you got?

    As a relentless non-artist, my real influence these days can be find at Bibliodyssey and Monster Brains blogs. These exquisite / weird / glorious imagery is my first Internet reference these days. But besides there are some others:
    - The crude creations by Jose Feitor at Imprensa Canalha, a Portuguese comic creator;
    - The Jules Verne editions by Hetzel, with great illustrations (my cheap Le Château des Carpathes edition provided by Livre de Poche)
    - These Roland Topor figures.
    - Wellsian "War of the Worlds" stuff.
