the ‘love’ series: perfect gift for valentine’s day etc etc…

With Valentine’s Day coming up, we thought we’d do a series of prints for all you love junkies out there.

Voila! The ‘Love’ Series. Order them now and get them in plenty of time before February 14th. Exactly!

You did the chocolate and flowers thing last year, anyway…

This cartoon series first came out of the Stormhoek “Love Tour” three years ago, when I was doing some Valentine’s promo for wine at Tesco’s, the large British supermarket chain. That was a very crazy two weeks; watch the video if you don’t believe me.

And Ladies, please always remember The Golden Rule: Men Are Stupid. So if you want your man to get you one of these beauties for Valentine’s Day, do not assume he and his walnut-sized brain will be smart enough to figure it out on their own. Best to drop him a hint. Maybe kick him in the shins. Or something.

I’ll be sending these cartoons out on my “Hugh’s Daily Cartoon” mailing list for the next week or two, then the plan is to do something less “cute and cuddly” after that. Rock on.

[P.S. The best way to support gapingvoid is to tell your friends about “Hugh’s Daily Cartoon” email.]

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

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.

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