    This was the image that inspired me to be an artist. (And the book was pretty good too!)

    If I could pin down 100% without a doubt as to what made me ever want to pick up a pencil, it'd be this. Yep.

    I STILL have no idea what the hell is going on in the back cover, but whatever.

    No idea why the side cover is from a different vhs, but I should be grateful I could even google this image at all.

    Something about seeing goodfellas and Ninjascroll for the first time made me want to get into art.
    Sam Kieth really made me want to draw too. He made drawing look like so much fun.

    Of course Yoji Shikawa will make anybody want to draw characters.

    When I first saw Nic Klien's work I wanted to be a concept artist and persue a realistic style.

    I could post art that influences me all day though. But these were the earliest.

    Well, Gummo is the most amazing movie and changed the way i look at film in general, and i found a tachen Cezanne book for 50p in a charity shop and bought it on a whim, read it a lot, decided to try drawing and painting for seriously, ie drawing people, plants, stuff from my imagination, things other than stuff for work basically, and set up a CAO sketchbook, and 1 year and.... 4 months later here we are! that painting just burned into my brain for some reason, along with a bunch of others. theres a couple of cezannes up the road in my local gallery and i always go and look at them.

    While I can think of dozens of images that blew my mind, I was probably most affected by my discovery of Francis Bacon. I never really recovered...

    Also, Corot's landscapes from Italy definately blew my mind:

    And much of Rembrandt as well:

    Attachment 1471729
    "Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

    Fairly standard, I know, but I was quite young when I first saw this one. And the impact it left is still with me, and still just as potent.

    This photo of Tracy Caldwell Dyson in the space station hit me like a train the first time I saw it... and every time after. All the beauty and romance of science, exploration, curiosity, and humanity's place in the universe is summed up in this picture. It's truly one of my favorite images.

    Pictures that changed your life

    The sun eclipsed by Saturn. That little dot in the upper-left corner of the rings is Earth.

    It should go without saying that I love the arts and that there's a lot that you get out of it that a photo can't give you. Images like these- journalistic recordings of the universe we live in- I find infinitely more awesome (in the truest sense of the word) than anything a human has ever expressed on canvas.
