my influence map

All the guys in my concept department did our influence map last week.  It was self illuminating to say the least.  It took me like, three hours or more to piece it all together.  I broke the rules and expanded the grid. I kept feeling really bad when I left anyone out. There is method to the madness...  Corner stones, chronology, accidental inaccuracy, incept-dates and longevity.  I didn't put in allot of my most recent influences... maybe cuz I feel they are influenced by the same masters I am... I don't know.  Art is all kinds of insane. 

mostly :)
