0.1% pure elation

Having enjoyed his gentle and perseverant comics for quite some time, we were pleased to learn that illustrator and humourist Grant Snider had recently released a collection of his panels as a book called The Shape of Ideas with an abundance of valuable insights on the creative process. There is of course an idiosyncratic aspect to routine and ritual and the only superpower that Nature bestowed on humans was grit, stamina and the ability to stick with what works, and we appreciated the invitation into how Snider begins his day and not being overwhelmed by a day-job and can relate to the struggle and accomplishment of keeping things in perspective. Be sure to check out the whole review from Hyperallergic at the link above and to follow Snider on all the things.
