It had to happen at some point.
1: Aubrey Beardsley. Beautiful, beautiful black and white drawings, with all those tiny little details, embellishments, and patterns that I love so well.
2: The Mighty Boosh: Besides the fact that this show is surreal and ridiculous, the actual look of the show, especially by season 3, is very colorful and fun, and it incorporates lots of animation.
3: Yoshitaka Amano: Ever since I saw his work in Neil Gaiman's "The Dream Hunters" book, I have loved this guy's work. So dark and delicate at the same time.
4: Naomi Nowak: I found her comics a few years ago, and they're gorgeous! Lots of wonderful watercolors and dreamy atmospheres.
5: Alphonse Mucha: What can I say? I love art nouveau, and Mucha is one of the best.
6: Jamie Hewlett: I love how he switches up art styles in Tank Girl, sometimes doing these really gorgeous colored pencil pages. And everything is so… rude! In the best way.
7: Gustav Klimt: I like how everything shines, and he uses abstract shapes and colors floating around the figures.
8: Sam Keith: The Maxx was fantastic, but Zero Girl is my favorite. So many art styles in here, but they flow together great.
9: Dave McKean: Cages was the first comic I read that did drastic art style changes, and I knew I had to do that someday. I don't actually remember the story, but the art will stay with me forever.
10: Daniel Clowes: Angry teenage girls who dress in weird clothing. This was me (though I was never very angry) and so much of YU+ME.
11: Dame Darcy: Taught me that perfect anatomy can go screw itself and exaggerated poses could be awesome. Incorporates embellishments like Beardsley, but in a more sketchy way.
12: Old comic/novel covers from the 40's-60's: Sexy woman, painterly style.
13: Roy Lichtenstein: He's less of an influence than he used to be, but Lesbian Pirates volume 1 was heavily influenced by his halftone stylings.
