Seth Godin’s office

[Thanks to Seth Godin for sending in these two photos: First, himself sitting underneath the "Dip" piece (he added the speech bubble himself) and then a "gapingvoid Wall" he has in his office of some of the the work I've done for him over the years. VERY Cool.]

[From yesterday's newsletter:]

In 2007, when Seth Godin asked me to draw some cartoons for his little masterpiece, The Dip, I had no idea that an eighty-page book could touch so many people, so profoundly. If you haven’t read it, you must- and you can get a copy here.

Given the simple, yet powerfully insightful lessons of the book, I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great for all of us Dip-fans out there to have all the cartoons inside a single hanging frame?” Something that would be a bit of a reminder – in the moments when you really need one?

It was so obvious, and Seth has them hanging above his desk [see above].

And yes, you can buy the cartoons individually as well, 11 x 14 prints on the main gapingvoid Seth page as well.

My books aren’t long, either, for similar reasons. It was The Dip that really clarified that for me.

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.

"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."

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