Inspiration and Friends

Below are links to various artists' work who inspire me.  Some are mentors from my past and present.  Others are people whose work I admire and am inspired by, from my early days to now.  Others yet are fellow friends and family who do amazing work.  However it may be, all of these artists somehow effect me and my work:
