Grant Snider p1

READERSVOICE.COM aims to gather a few interesting reading tips. Grant Snider’s Incidental Comics are whimsical, philosophical and poetic takes on topics like idleness, ampersands, writing, containing emotions and the need to keep dancing when heavy things start falling from the sky. His comics are neat and apparently simple, with a nice use of color. Hand-drawn frames are stacked on each other, with neat lettering and simple illustrations. His new book The Shape of Ideas, an illustrated exploration of Creativity, will be released in April.
