William Shakespeare was the baddest bisexual of the 16th century. His work is continually growing and being re-adapted by modern artists and performers. Once you get past all of the -eths, -hos, and pretentious scholars making tests out of it, his plays are fun and remain relevant no matter the time or place.

Zoe Persico

“Doe, a Deer”

Zoe Persico is an illustrator who has worked for DreamWorks TV, Sesame workshop, and Little Golden Books. Her work has inspired me because of her experimentation with textures and light.

Joel Plosz

Joel Plosz is a New York based animator and illustrator that creates unique, stylized graphics. He currently works as a motions graphic designer for Mashable. I find his simple color schemes and geometric style highly appealing due to the simplicity of the work. I find him inspiring because he proves that less can definitely be more when it comes to design.

Michael Mapes

I was inspired by Michael-Mapes art works. He use photographs of each part of human body and place them to make bigger picture.

Deconstructionism is a form of postmodernism art. French philosopher Jacques Berria describes deconstructionism theory where “uncertainty and self-awareness are now the issue at hand rather than take and beauty and this redefines our notion of aesthetic judgement” (Destruction as an Aesthetic Theory)

Deconstructionism could be expressed as collage, distort of image, etc.

Inspiration

Presenting the reigning, double champion of the UFC, the Notorious, Conor McGregor.  This guy came from nothing and is now one of the biggest names in combat sports history.  Although, we are different types of artist, no one gets me going like this guy.  One day, I believe that I will become as successful as this man.

“My success isn’t a result of arrogance – it’s a result of belief.”  -Conor McGregor

Geoff Johns is an American comic book and television writer. He is a writer for DC comic and is best known for his run on Green Lantern after he revived the franchise following Green Lantern Rebirth in 2004 and ended in 2013. I am really inspired by Geoff Johns and his way of writing stories. How he is able to take every small detail, take any irrelevant character and make them into an essential part of every story he writes. I hope one day to write a comic book run as massive and intertwined as Geoff Johns’ run on Green Lantern.

Inspiration

Viktor Hertz

Viktor Hertz is a graphic designer and filmmaker. I really enjoy his design style, especially for this personal project: Pictogram music posters. He designed simple illustrations for different songs by different artists. The ideas are fun, interesting and crazy. I found them inspiring because the extremely simple style in all those designs is very convincing and attractive, and they give different objects new definitions with even more fun to audience.
