The Influences of Smack!
Inspired by the recent meme over at DeviantArt, I decided to put together this collection of influences that make up the artistic DNA build that is Sean Mack. The process of figuring out exactly what inspired me and putting it into collective form was actually the most calming and liberating morning I ever had. Although it was also the most difficult. There's so much that I get inspired from on a day to day basis that it's hard to pinpoint my exact influences. Hell, if you look at the styles on the map you might have to take a second glance at my own work. I do know it definitely helped lift some demons that plagued me when I woke up.
