On his motivation to get into comics, Steven said this to Sketch
“This probably sounds bad, but it was kind of the path of least resistance. I had been doing work in other fields (gaming, mostly) and was trying to get into Sci-Fi and Fantasy cover painting, and doing some comic work here and there for fun. But, then I met Matt Fraction via some mutual friends from the Kansas City Art Institute, and things just kind of rolled from there. Honestly, I can be happy drawing just about anything. It’s the process that I find the most rewarding, not the final product, and making comics is a very complex and nuanced process, so I feel pretty good about my prospects of keeping challenged by it for quite some time.”
