here's mine  although this isnt an official challenge i thought it might be better to put it here. if you mods have a problem with it feel free to move it to a gallery of your choosing. as you see i had nowhere near the same influences as pijon...but e did relate on a couple and just like him i had nowhere near enough room to put all my choices. i wasn't sure if i was supposed to adhere to the guidelines of the map so i toook a few liberties with mine. hope you like and feel free to ask about my choices.

 Re: Starchild's Influence Map
A couple of artists that also appear on mine. I was never influenced by Fazetta, I only only knew him from some record covers a friend had. I do remember a Boris book were he goes into his style and shows how he uses photos to make paintings.His wife is a painter also. You know none of the image guys influenced me at all. I haven't bought a Jim Lee drawn book since Wildcats. I drew Larson's Savage Dragon character a few times. When I was watching Saturday morning cartoons Hanna Barbara wasn't doing any superheroes except the Superfriends. Scooby Doo and their other teenage detectives didn't influence me. Perez I knew. He was on avengers, but when he went to DC to do Teen Titans I stopped following him. This a interesting map

One of the best maps so far.

I see a lot of choices I wish I could included in mine.

Gaaah! I missed John Buscema and Neal Adams! How could I miss John Buscema and Neal Adams?

A lot of awesome here. Hanna-Barbera brings a smile to my face. Frazetta and Vallejo are still awesome. Especially Frazetta -- so dynamic.

 Re: Starchild's Influence Map
All great choices but just gotta say I really regret not having included John Buscema and Neal Adams. Ugh! It felt like Adams was DC's top dog and Buscema was Marvel's for a while when I was growing up and everything those guys touched turned to gold. Adams' Batman and GL/GA and Buscema's Avengers and Conan were some particular high points for me!

 Re: Starchild's Influence Map
I must admit there's one thing I don't like about a lot of your choices and it's that I didn't pick 'em first!! All great choices, dude! The map itself came out terrific too and the arrangement of great artists is excellent! I also like the inclusion of produces Hanna-Barbera too! They certainly fueled our young turbo-charged imaginations growing up! I fully expected to be iinspired by my own map, I'm just a little surprised how inspired I am by yours! Great job, bud!

 Re: Starchild's Influence Map
I know i said i'd field questions about my map but i thought i'd go one better and save you the trouble by elaborating on my choices.
Frank Frazetta - Quite possibly the greatest artist I've ever seen. He made every man look dynamic, every woman look ravishing, every battle look bloodthirsty and every monster look...well...monsterous! Still #1 in my book!
John Buscema - The artist I tried to emmulate my early drawing to.
Jack "King" Kirby - Do I really need to say?
Hanna Barbera - Watching those Space Ghost, Young Samson, Herculoids etc.. really turned my childhood fantasies to superheroes.
Boris Vallejo - Sort of a junior Frazetta. Not quite as dynamic or eye-catching but his work more closely resembled reality to me.
Jim Lee - One of the most skilled comic artists I know. Anyone who's ever seen his X-Men already know where I'm coming from.
Gil Kane - His own unique flair for creating action scenes drove me to put as much effort in my own work.
George Perez - His attention to detail and willingness to do group images was a defining factor in my own attempts at large scale images.

There are others who didn't make the cut...John Byrne, Jim Aparo, Dave Cockrum, George Tuska etc.. but most of them were just favorites.
