The gapingvoid #Sandy Cartoons

#sandy. Wow. I’m stunned. It’s been quite an eventful 24 hours, to say the least. My prayers go out to everybody.

I drew these three cartoons this morning, and posted them on Instagram [username: @gapingvoid]. Though they won’t dry out the land any quicker, I hope they’ll make somebody suffering through this first-hand feel better for  a little while, at least.

[P.S. As you know, New York City and I have this very intense long-distance love affair- I used to live there, so I’m particularly upset about what happened to my old West Village neighborhood. I visit frequently, though not NEARLY often enough. Boo.]

Time to be strong…


  1. I love these. NYC IS recovering. People are banding together, and we will be alright. Viva New York.

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.

"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.
