an easy life


[About Hugh. E-mail Hugh. Hire Hugh. Buy Hugh’s Art. Car­toon Archive.]


  1. This is one of your best ones yet, Hugh. When you’re looking at someone with an easy life, you’re staring at a mirage…or a meringue. Except meringues get eaten.

  2. So true, so true…

  3. I’m so lucky to know one of those rare cases, but not lucky enough to be me!

    Keep on keepin’ on.

  4. I like this one Hugh. An easy life is an illusion, it usually ends up coming back to kick you in the butt anyway, it’s called being lazy!

  5. It’s when you choose the hard life and still get screwed that you really start livin’.

  6. “If you ain’t strugglin’, you ain’t living” -often quoted by a friend whose life has involved much struggle.

  7. William Cowper: “A life of ease is a difficult pursuit.”

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

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.

"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

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