"In Steven's artwork, I see the whimsy, intensity and honor of each character he has imagined. Every pen stroke has been placed with not only an eye to detail, but to draw the onlooker into a place and time many of us wish existed.
"It's easy to see he loves his work. His black-and-white renderings are of such quality that anyone studying them can imagine another reality. If you scrutinize his art for any length of time, you can actually smell the greenery of magical woodlands; hear the clank of armor, or the whinny of a high-bred stallion. Listen closer and you can hear the smattering of gnome voices as if they're beside you. When a dragon roars, Steven captures the sound of it with ink.
"What Steven has shared isn't just the talent of drawing. He's conveying dreams. And in a world that is often tormented with despair, tragedy and cynicism, there is no greater gift one human can give another then the ability to imagine. The worlds he creates—with his pens and inks—are stunning and full of life. And all this from a human being who is as humble and friendly as some of the ethereal characters he has crafted.
"It would be enough to say that Steven Moore is a master artist, skilled in mesmerizing others with his fantastical drawing. But add to that his ability to magnificently write stories to go with the characters he sketches and it's easy to see some otherworldly force is acting through him. Truly—the gnomes, elves, dragons and knights are on Steven's side. Through him, they become real to the rest of us. Through him, they speak to us all."
