I was one of the ones who made this, but I got a little tired and some of the arrows started to go wrong way around 1am. Maria fixed it. Thanks Maria!

Created this weekend over the course of six hours as part of Longshot magazine’s Debt issue, “Circles of Influence” is a chart of artistic, scientific, and phiosophical debts through time. It’s also very pretty and something we’d like to hang on our wall. 

Listen to a Longshot Radio interview about the making of this chart with Michelle Legro of Lapham’s Quarterly, Maria Popova of Brain Pickings, and illustrator Wendy MacNaughton.
