What is the shape of ideas? In Grant Snider’s new book, the comic artist uses pen and ink to draw the creative process from “inspiration” and “contemplation” to “desperation” and “daily frustration.” We’ve featured Grant Snider’s beautiful and thoughtful comics in the past, and are happy to publish three excerpts from the new book here. If you’re an artist or writer, you might recognize your own process in these panels.
