Inspiration: Saul Steinberg DVD

DVD sent from Steinberg's niece and director of the film Daniela Roman.

Love this image with combo of line and small slice of photography.
Saul was a Master of collage.

Exciting for me to see footage of him actually drawing.
Has inspired me to experiment with using pen + ink rather than just marker.

I ordered this DVD on Saul Steinberg from his niece Daniela Roman who co-directed and produced the film along with Thierry Fontaine. She sent it to me from Paris and included a lovely Saul postcard with it. It's a great doc which I know I'll replay again + again for inspiration. Favourite line from film:
From the French Cartoonist Cabu "When I saw Steinberg's work I thought I should put down my pen and find another job". I know that feeling.
