“A creative kaleidoscope of humor, insight, and truth,” Grant Snider’s graphic novel The Shape of Ideas: An Illustrated Exploration of Creativity offers ideas and insights to everyone looking to flex their creative muscles.
What does an idea look like? And where do they come from? Grant Snider’s illustrations will motivate you to explore these questions, inspire you to come up with your own answers and, like all Gordian knots, prompt even more questions.
Whether you are a professional artist or designer, a student pursuing a creative career, a person of faith, someone who likes walks on the beach, or a dreamer who sits on the front porch contemplating life, this collection of one- and two-page comics will provide insight into the joys and frustrations of creativity, inspiration, and process—no matter your age or creative background.
“An inventive window into the creative experience filled with hope and encouragement for daydreamers and doodlers, sketchers and scribblers, inventors, explorers, and spinners of yarns.” —*Newbery Medal winner Clare Vanderpool
