How to Have an Idea, by Frank Chimero

Where do ideas come from?

Or, an even better question to ask is: where do good ideas come from?

You could spend hours or even days trying to come up with a good idea, but what’s holding you back may be something that doesn’t even need to. Are you worried about the process? Maybe you’re worried about making a mistake? Perhaps you’re not sure what generalizations or points to begin with?

Frank Chimero (who is an incredibly talented, and creative designer and illustrator) has come up with a semi‒sort of comic to help you get past your initial hesitations and get started making ideas. Frank calls it: How to Have an Idea.

Frank’s comic is worth not only taking a look, but also bookmarking, downloading, printing off and hanging in your bedroom, and whatever else you can think of doing with it.

Really.
