I'm really annoyed at all my comic book friends now, for never introducing me to Button Man. It looks perfect! I thought you meant Axel Pressbutton for a sec, I've never heard of Button Man!
I'd heard of Arthur Ranson but not really checked him out - love it! It's like a British version of Travis Charest (well, more like he's a US version of Ranson).
I realised recently that although I'd taught myself to draw by copying people like Art Adams and John Byrne, then John Bolton and Bill Sienkiewicz, I've gravitated more and more towards my earliest influence, which was John Ridgway on an early issue of Transformers:
His noir-style and realism appeals to my inner five year old - 'Man of Iron' stuck with me for years (and then some more of his stuff in Warrior). It's really really British, I think that's why I loved Bryan Hitch's art for so long.
I can see it a lot in a sequential page I did a while back:
Cityscape-wise, I did this one? But yeah, I should do a LOT more backgrounds.
Sorry, you've got me really analysing the origins of my style, now!
