the social event of the year: the purple cow print party, NYNY, October 8th

[The Purple Cow Print. Click on image to enlarge etc.]

[UPDATE:]  CONFIRMED: The print party will be held at Ilili, 6pm-Late, on 8th October, 2009.

Between 27th & 28th
236 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10001, USA
(212) 683-2929‎

The res­tau­rant will be suppl­ying food, Stormhoek will be suppl­ying wine. Plus there will be a cash bar, if you’d rather have beer or liquor. It’ll be a fun eve­ning. Rock on.

For those of you still in the dark re. The Purple Cow Print that I worked on with Seth Godin, one of the greatest marketing thinkers in the world, this is just a note to say I’ve set up an archive of all the blog posts about it here
Seth blogs about it here as well…
And of course, it’s for sale on the gapingvoid gallery

The other bit of news is, Seth and I will be throwing an official launch party for the print in New York City on the evening of October 8th, 2009. A chance for friends of both gapingvoid and Seth to hang out and meet n’ greet. A bit belated, maybe, but we both had very busy summers.
We’re throwing the party in a Lebanese restaurant in Chelsea, I’ll also have some of my other works on display- both prints AND original drawings. And yes, they’ll be for sale. So it’ll be a bit like an art opening, with perhaps more emphasis than usual on the people attending [not to mention, food and drink], than the actual art itself. Stormhoek, naturally, will be supplying the wine.
Details to follow shortly. Watch this space etc.
Anyway, I hope if you’re in the area, you’ll be able to make it. Thanks.
[NOTE TO SELF: What a crazy adventure this has all been so far…]

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

Former President, Babson College

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
