Some of these people include Thomas Campbell, Cheryl Dunn, Shepard Fairey and Harmony Korine. They explain what their specific influences were and what it was like to become popular and respected in the art world, ultimately turning their hobbies into careers which businesses sought to incorporate into advertisements and product design.
