Those are very charming. Makes me want to get grandiose stationery to draw on. Not that I could draw so wittily. Heck, I can barely draw at all.

Saul Steinberg's drawings make me deeply happy. I think because they retain a spontaneous, doodly quality, even though the artist is clearly an accomplished draftsman.
