He used to bring a big box of art with him to GenCon. Steve's incredibly prolific, and so there were all sorts of pieces in that box for all manner of projects, and often budget-priced. Which is perfect for a cheap-ass like me. So, a couple years back I rifled through and picked up this little pencil piece. I have no idea what it was for. As someone who just likes art, I usually don't care:
5x5" pencil on paper
$15. I mean, really, the price of a cd or a pizza. I regret not picking up a couple more. I don't think he's been bringing the big box of stuff to events more recently, so these steals aren't likely to come your way anymore. This is an older piece, and Steve's unending lead has turned out so many great drawings since doing this piece years ago that he's quickly become one of my favorite lead-pushers around. Go pick up his book, "Aggregate" and find out why this guy puts me in a depressive funk on a regular basis. His Draw Blog is another excellent source of awesomeness.
