What I find much more interesting are influence maps, because its guaranteed to have a direct relevance on what you're reading, and can sometimes allow you to better enjoy what you're reading by shedding some light on the elements that make it up. Or it just gives you something else to look at that shares some aspect with what you're already reading.


Influence maps are pretty interesting, but I couldn't figure out how to put one up. Everything I've been exposed to influences me, and I don't exactly keep track of it that well. I could easily point to a couple items and remark hoe they have inspired me, but, it's unlikely I could find more than four.

Four seems like a good number to me, if I were to make such a page I don't think I'd go beyond six. Of course anything we see influences us in some way or another, but I'm talking about when you see something you want in someone else's work and actively make the effort to break it down, practice it, and assimilate it into your own style.

What I like to see is a small enough list that you can intimately explain why each item is there.
