I've been seeing these Influence Maps going around and I thought I'd do one too. I couldn't quite fit everyone on here I wanted to. These are some artists who have made a significant impact on me currently or growing up.
i had to do one for my graphic design class, you'd love it: [link]
GC almost made it up there in the music section, because i have a lot of works that were really influenced by "the young and the hopeless" and "chronicles of life and death" cds, but i ran out of room but believe me, GC has been a huge influence as well.
especially your "chronicles" artwork. i'd say that was your best album artistically - i just love the concept of it and i love the art you did for it, and the "predictable" video and how you designed all the sets. you really turned that album into an amazing work of art (not that it wouldn't have been great otherwise). billy, i really love your art and your style. ^^
