It’s Friday the 13th known to some as Blame Someone Else Day, so me and a bunch of other artists from United Webcomics are taking this opportunity to tell you whose fault it is we all turned into artists, or, that is to say, name our influences. And do it with ART!
So this one is sorta a combo for me: I have drawn the Goblin King from Labyrinth as played by David Bowie*. I cut my teeth drawing portraits of David Bowie’s Face. Labyrinth is my favourite film of all time and vastly responsible for getting me into the fantasy genre. The art design was also done by one of my favourite artists of all time: Brian Froud. He’s known for books about faeries illustrated almost exclusively in watercolour. Oh and there’s Jim Henson, too.
* Sorry I cheated and used an old piece of Fan Art instead of drawing something brand new. Because migraine.
