Steven Stines has been called “the Marni Nixon of illustration,” able to adapt his style based on the needs and aesthetics of the individual client. Trained as a theatre designer, he uses character, costume and props to tell a story in a single image. His formative influences as an illustrator were Archie comics, Mattel toys and 1970s TV variety shows.
