Cartoon: ‘The Haunted House’

We meant to publish this insightful (and sweet) look at Halloween by Grant Snider, philosopher-cartoonist extraordinaire, last week, on, you know, Halloween. But then we started bobbing for apples and carving pumpkins and swapping costumes and one thing led to another and…well, we forgot is what we did.

Enjoy Grant Snider doing what he does best – feeling and even more importantly expressing his feelings – now:

Grant’s new picture book, WHAT COLOR IS NIGHT, will be out November 5th. Look for it in your favorite bookstore!

While you’re at it, you can find more of Grant’s extraordinary perception of human creativity at Incidental Comics, HERE

And if you haven’t already done so (how could you not?) buy Grant’s other wonderful book, The Shape of Ideas, HERE

LB: Richard Thompson, ‘Cul de Sac,’ & the Writer’s Place in Society

by Larry Brody

I’ve said it before, and now I’m saying it again. Richard Thompson was one of the finest cartoonists to ever put ink onto a newspaper cartoon strip.

He also was a man who understood the massive importance of creativity and creators to human existence and demonstrated it often in his classic comic strip Cul de Sac.

For example:

Cartoon: ‘The Book Fair’

Grant Snider, philosopher-cartoonist extraordinaire, pulls out all the stops in this interpretation of what a book fair should be/really is. It’s all a matter of looking at it in just the right light.

This TVWriter™ minion’s favorite area is the “Fresh-Squeezed Romance” stand. What’s yours?

Cartoon: ‘Walking’

At first glance, this cartoon (should we call it an “illustrative essay?”) by Grant Snider, philosopher-cartoonist extraordinaire, may not seem to be about writing.

But like so many of the subtle observations Grant makes, the last panel here brings us a treasure – the secret of creativity of all kinds, just waiting for us to put it to use.
