My work already has a pretty heavy Mignola influence, that's pretty easy to see. I'm a huge fan of his work and besides that we have a lot of the same influences (Frazetta, Wyeth, etc. Shape-based illustrators and painters), so when I'm drawing things that dip into his familiar territory (i.e. SKULLS), it's hard not to draw the parallel. It just means that I need to tap into some other vein. These are starting to drift in a good direction, though I'm sure I'll never be rid of that looming shadow. I'm not sure I'd want to be.
