daily bizcard 024: ice t

Today’s “Daily Bizcard” design, “The Utter Terror”, goes to my favorite rapper, Ice T.

I’ve been listening to Ice T for two decades. “Body Count” is one of my favorite rock albums.

I’ve never been much into rap per se (I’m more of a Lester Young fan), but I always liked and admired Ice T’s approach- raw, honest, truthful, uncompromising, interesting, thoughtful, intense, original… with a playful sense of humor, buried deep in the apple like a razor.

i.e. The man is no phony. The man is an artist. All art springs from that “utter terror”, whether we care to admit it or not, so I’m thinking he might like this cartoon.

Besides that, it seems we’re both Iceberg Slim fans. Rock on.

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.
