aww thank you so much! that makes me really happy to hear... that reminds me, i should make one of those inspiration map memes sometime! i really like vintage illustrators like harry beckhoff, gluyas williams, and jessie wilcox smith, manga artists like osamu tezuka, some artists on tumblr (like steviebo.com/ and verticalart.tumblr.com/) and my friends! and russian animation like nu pogodi of course.

You're welcome!!! C: And also thank you for answering this!!!
If you get the chance, I'd love to see your inspiration map.
A wonderful selection!! I can see how Beckhoff influenced your colors! :star:
Smith is such a staple in American illustration, like, seeing some of his stuff reminded me of some prints I'd see in people's houses or in books.
And I am such a sucker for Stevie Bo and Maddie!! They've got gorgeous styles.
I tried to watch an ep of Nu Pogodi, I skipped around a bit but the animation is so gooooood!!
You really captured the charming and nostalgic qualities about all of these artists, that's for sure.

of course! i love to talk about my art and influences hehe... people often tell me my work seems nostalgic or retro, which makes me glad! looking at my own art i sometimes feel like it's hard for me to really pinpoint any kind of style or vibe or anything, because i see it so much.. i can't see the forest though the trees, i guess. so i really appreciate that kind of feedback!
