My first real memory of sequential art was a book given to me by my grandparents at a young age. Looking back on it 'Very Posy' was perhaps not the most age appropriate present for an under 6 year old. However It did get me interested in the medium and still inspires me.
So there we have the start of many inspirations. I will do more posts showing other aspects of what's influenced me but I'll leave you with that for now.
