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 amusing and thoughtful collection of comic strips about the very broad concept of ideas. Snider gets quite creative visually in order to explore the topic. He is also quite adept at looking at it from many different angles. The book is helpfully split up into a number of sections which break apart the concept. These are: Inspiration, Perspiration, Improvisation, Aspiration, Contemplation, Exploration, Daily Frustration, Imitation, Desperation, and Pure Elation. The headings alone give you a clear idea of what to expect. Throughout, Snider never says that any one way is the correct way to spark ideas and be creative, rather he shows that there are an infinite amount of ways. However, people usually face many of the same frustrations and pitfalls, joys and successes in the process. The Shape of Ideas is just one of those books to just pick up on a daily basis for a bit of inspiration, comfort, and humour. For more, you can check out Snider's comics at incidentalcomics.com
