Discovering Artists: Saul Steinberg

Along with artists that have been my inspiration for a while, I love to discover new inspiring artists. Today I was for the first time introduced to Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) via Scott McCloud’s blog. Steinberg was an artist whose work appeared in the New Yorker for decades. Looking over his work, I feel like he falls somewhere between Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) and Shel Silverstein (1930-1999), wielding the fine control and minimalism of the former and the wild daring scrawl of the latter to create thoughtful and intelligent images.
