Cartoon: ‘Sledding’

With this one simply named comic strip, Grant Snider, our all-time fave poet/philosopher/cartoonist/orthodontist, proves himself to be the very opposite of Camus’ Sisyphus as he goes all-out and gives us not merely a metaphor for the act of, say, writing, but a wonderful lesson in living the most enjoyable of lives:

 The Shape of Ideas Sketchbook by Grant Snider 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
