When you create something, you're always influenced by many pieces of work. Sometimes because they are popular, because you like it or just because they stay sticked in your mind - and you naively think that dealing with it once and for all you'll feel free.
When I wrote "Infinite Fates" I thought to all the master pieces bellow. I like them very much and I wanted to build something new with little elements I borrowed from these works.
If you liked Infinite Fates you may be interested by these artworks.
Following the titles I explained briefly in what they influenced me.
- Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Most of the characters of « Infinite Fates » are dreamers such as Amelie who like playing with others’ life. Amelie is the fist Weaver I met. If you saw the movie, you can imagine Hannah as a "professional Amelie".
This movie depicts the poetry of everyday life and the meeting of people a bit lost. For me it proves that everybody can be sometimes a Weaver.
Magic boutique, jumps across time and space. Hayao Miyazaki aesthetic also shaped my drawing style and my imagination in general.

Les yeux d’or
by Marie Desplechin
Here characters are dreamers, again. In this book, Edmée could be called a Weaver.
