There's gonna be a lot of animation and comics people on this list
  1. Bryan Lee O'Malley
    Cartoonist and author of graphic novels like Lost at Sea, Seconds, and the Scott Pilgrim series. His work introduced me to comics and I hope to be able to create something as great one day.
  2. Rebecca Sugar
    The first woman to create a show for Cartoon Network. I believe that her show, Steven Universe, is one of the best things on TV right now.
  3. Alex Hirsch
    Creator of another great cartoon show: Gravity Falls. He just seems like an all-around cool guy.
  4. Hayao Miyazaki
    Nothing short of a legend
  5. J.K. Rowling
    Kind of an unoriginal choice but there's a reason for that, let's be honest.
  6. John Mulaney
    I wish that I could be this funny.
  7. Mark Hamill
    Whatever I end up doing for my career, I can only hope that I love it as much as Mark Hamill loves voicing cartoon villains.
  8. Bill Watterson
    A ridiculously talented cartoonist who you probably know as the writer/artist behind Calvin and Hobbes. His art style is simple but beautiful and he's been a huge influence on me.
