fifteen in fifteen

October 7th, 2010 | Leave a Comment

Something came along Facebook today and I thought I’d post it here. Fifteen artists whose influence will always stick. There are a lot of artists in my “inspirations” folder and on my bookshelves. These are in the permanent collection. For whatever reason, something about what they do or how they do it resonates no matter how many years go by.

Some of these are obvious, others less so. And they are in no particular order at all.

Edward Gorey
Jacques Tardi
Chris Ware
Seymour Chwast
Arnold Lobel
Richard Scarry
Walt Disney
Saul Steinberg
B. Kliban
George Tooker
Ben Shahn
Jorge Colombo
Robert Crumb
Bill Watterson
Maurice Sendak
