One of the many wonderful things about looking at his drawings is their inspirational message, especially to his fellow artists: Draw what you love and what interests you. Draw it how you want to draw it. When we are children we do this instinctively. But somewhere in our passage from childhood to adulthood, the ability to be truly and fearlessly creative is often lost. […] I’m not saying that looking at Steig’s drawings will solve all of anyone’s art problems. Just that giving yourself over to his work is a step in the right direction.
