A list of artists (and bands, and some individual works) that have deeply influenced me.
A list which is far from complete, and probably never will be, though I will add more names as I find time. I also plan to add links to their respective homes/archives on the web.
And then there are of course hundreds (thousands?) more creative geniuses whose work also has a home in my heart. The ones listed here here have had a lasting impact strong enough for me to want to revisit their works for years, exploring what one might call their Souls expression. Most were especially vivid for me during a specific period in my life, to later slowly fade, yet the imprint on my being will always remain and forever add something ineffable to my own artistic expressions. I am deeply grateful to all.
