Slightly Disorganized List of Key Artistic Heroes (Any Medium)

* This list does not appear in order, because the order changes every minute of every day. Nor is this a reflection of the exact style or manner of art I wish to emulate, or the heights to which I aspire. More so, this is a matter of the spirit– these people were and are embodiments of the type of passion and view of the world and the universe that I love. These people, in short, are mechanisms in the machinery that I believe with all my heart makes existence so gorgeous. Their minds entrance me. Their souls ignite mine. That is all.
