Finally got around to finishing this!

TOP ROW:

kozyndan - Seamlessly blends asian and western influences in their illustrations and has fun with Japanese pop culture. Their panoramic pieces are my favourites. [link]

"DORAEMON" - A series I grew up on. Influenced my career choice. The first manga I drew was a Doraemon fan story.

LEFT COLUMN, 3 SMALL SQUARES:

Brandon Bird - Best satirical celebrity portrait artist and Law & Order fan. [link]

"Monkey Island" series - Lucasart's best. I grew up on PC games -- especially point-and-click adventure games.

Yuusuke Murata - "Eyeshield 21" artist. Helped improve my marker art and drive to have diversity in character design.

MIDDLE:
RYUU FUJISAKI - Manga creator who's done Houshin Engi, Shiki, Waq Waq and others. Anyone who knows his work can see his influences in my comicking style, inking and character designs.

RIGHT COLUMN, 2 SMALL SQUARES:

Naoki Urasawa - One of the greatest manga creators living today. Wrote and drew Monster, 20th Century Boys, Pluto, and currently doing Billy Bat. Admired Osamu Tezuka.

Osamu Tezuka - Known as "the father of manga". His art is cool, but his writing is even better. Admired American animation.

BOTTOM ROW:

ukiyo-e art - a.k.a. Japanese woodblock prints. Ones by Yoshitoshi Tsukioka (pictured) in particular, with his macabre subject matter.

"Okami" - Artistically innovative game by CAPCOM that somehow managed to make 3D models look like sumi-e art. Made me want to incorporate ancient Japanese art styles into my own.

"THE SIMPSONS" - Watched it even when I was too young to understand the jokes. My sense of humour comes from here, basically.
