[Moo’s announcement on their blog here.]


As y’all know, I got my start from “drawing cartoons on the back of business cards”

A couple of years later, after drawing a few thousand of them, I started letting others publish my cartoons on their own business cards, as well. I thought it would be fun, people handing out these little subversive drawing-ideas, as opposed the usual boring-corporate-formal etc.

Just as the right cartoon on the wall of an office can spark “smarter conversations” around the water cooler, the right cartoon on your business card can change the conversation around you and your business.

So it’s with great happiness and excitement, after years of talking about doing something with them one day, I am pleased to announce that gapingvoid is now publishing cartoon business cards with, the coolest business-card publisher on the planet.

Actually, Moo’s Founder & CEO, Richard Moross and I go way back, when we used to go to the same seminal “Web 2.0” parties in London, back in the heady, early days of blogging. I always liked the fellow, frankly, and I always thought we should be working together.

Moo has launched with 5 great packs of gapingvoid images, from Love, to Business, to Inspiration… in all, hundreds of cartoons to choose from.

You can use just one cartoon as your design, or have a different image on every card (a cool bit of printing magic Moo offers with their packs).

And if you do make some gapingvoid cards over there, please share a picture of them with us, and please let me know what kind of reactions your cards get. Perhaps we can pimp your business by showing a picture of your cards here, or something like that… Sound like a plan? Email:

I hope you’ll go check them out, Thanks.



  1. I love your blog and cartoons – they are very creative! I also like as a good blog on creative ideas.

  2. I love the artistic touch of cartoons in business cards. It simply means you don’t have to be serious all the time to be taken seriously.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

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.
