no point stressing out


  1. Yes, you’re right Hugh, but while I am an undead the shit matters an awful lot.

  2. Elizabeth says:

    The drawing reminds me of the Egyptian winged disk that hung above every templr door and represented the soul. Maybe the heiroglyphs spelled out a similar message ;)

  3. Heheh. So comforting.

    Do these abstract sketches inspire the captions, or do you think of something you want to say before creating an accompanying cartoon?

  4. I think that exact thought at least 50 times a day, too often really.

    This one would make an excellent cube grenade in my mcjob.

  5. An inpsiring touch of reality! I needed that right now :)

    ps. Just read Ignore Everybody. Thanks! Worth a second and third read.

  6. Or, as i like to tut it myself:

    When you die, statistically, nobody cares

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.
