This cartoon has made the rounds of the interwebs so thoroughly, that we couldn’t find who to credit for it.
It wasn’t supposed to be about TV (or film writing) but simply about “business.” But since our business is creativity, Your Friendly Neighborhood Team TVWriter™ noticed more than just a few similarities to our Not Necessarily So Friendly Industry.
Or, as William Fordes once said, while working away as a writer and producer on Law & Order: “We get into this business seeing ourselves as muralists. We wake up to find we’re house painters.”
Our fave philosopher-cartoonist, Grant Snider, has written his first children’s book, and it’s now available for pre-order.
The cover alone has us salivating, and when you’re as old as this particular TVWriter™ minion, that ain’t as easy as it sounds:
Grant’s most recent book is The Shape of Ideas Sketchbook which features new illustrations, comics on drawing and creativity, and many blank pages for your own ideas, doodles, and observations. Order it from Abrams or wherever you get your books.
While you’re at it, you can find more of Grant’s extraordinary perception of human creativity at Incidental Comics, HERE
