Minimalism is Simple


The panels in this comic were adapted from paintings by Ellsworth Kelly and Sol LeWitt. There are many great blogs with advice on how to live a minimalist lifestyle. I think none are as helpful as absorbing the simple beauty of minimalist art.

You can order a poster here.

Yup. It's way difficult than it looks.

Grant, thanks so much for this strip - it made me think quite a bit. I hope you don't mind that I reposted it over on my blog as part of a post about what it meant to me.

I tried to balance it out by linking back to your store, but if you'd prefer me to take it down please say.

This is excellent advice for anyone who needs to create any kind of meaningful human expression.

I especially like the one "stop searching for hidden meaning".

A minimalist lifestyle is what I prefer. I believe simple beauty will never fail to catch a viewer's attention. Over-designing is overrated. Whenever I contribute creative ideas, I always do it in the simplest style I could think of. Always gets the job done!

This is truly inspiring, keep up the good work! Your drawings are amusing!

Your works are amazing! Good thing they're copyrighted because I'm tweeting [almost] all of them! Thank you for your inspiring cartoons.

Grant, I love you art education comics. As a budding want-to-be artist at 65 these are to the point, easy to understand and don't waste my time. I need to savory the time I have and quickly experience all that has alluded me before retirement. Please do more! Grandma Linda
