To say Steven Universe is a popular show would be an understatement. The animated series on Cartoon Network has spawned a legion of fans of all ages and a gaggle of cosplayers and fan artists the world over, not to mention three Emmy nominations.

That response is exactly what series creator Rebecca Sugar says she was hoping for when she created the show. Sugar told SYFY WIRE, "It was part of my hope even early on as we were designing the characters to have a huge range of looks for characters that could create a huge range of looks for cosplay."

Sugar also talked about the new Steven Universe art book that will be hitting shelves, which includes interviews with the creative team behind the hit show. She even hopes it will inspire fans to start drawing.
