From time to time, Druillet’s influences shine through. Here, the most obvious are Kirby and Giger. Druillet’s been Kirby influenced for some time, but the Giger stuff is relatively new. I really like how the sky in the background is done using a completely different art style.

Thinking about it for an essay on Shia LaBeouf’s bullshit + influence + post-modernist art, and I love artists whose stuff is pretty singularly theirs but who are also really open about their influences and where their style comes from.
1. Paul Pope
2. Hugo Pratt
4. Jack Kirby
5. Tatsuya Egawa
6. Vittorio Giardino
7. Guido Crepax
8. Tony Salmons
9. Katsuhiro Otomo
10. Bruno Premiani
Obviously these aren’t all of Pope’s influences (I didn’t include Frank Miller, Milo Manara, or Goseki Kojima) but I like that you can see them in Pope’s work without it taking away from the quality or singular style of his linework.
Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s Fantastic Four
Frank Miller’s Sin City
