Think Like a Cartoonist

A Celebration of Humor and Creativity

by Leigh Rubin

  • Description
  • Contents
Main blurb (ca. 175 words)Inside every one of us is the boundless potential for creativity. Often it's the constant challenges life presents us, simple or complex, that allow us to tap into the very best of our imaginations.
In addition to sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch, we possess that most unusual sense: humor. Of all the senses, humor proves to be the most useful when navigating the ups, downs, and in-betweens of life. (Hey, it works for me!)
Is it possible that we all might benefit by adopting a more lighthearted approach to life?
In this book you will discover some of the brilliant and often funny ways people from all walks of life have successfully tapped into their inner genius-portrayed through a collection of essays accompanied by whimsical Rubes® cartoons. May their stories inspire you to Think Like a Cartoonist.
