Office Art: Freedom From Spreadsheets

office art freedom_from_spreadsheets

[Buy the print here etc.]

If the numbers of emails I’ve gotten today is anything to go by, this “Spreadsheet” cartoon that we sent out in today’s newsletter really hit a nerve. I guess it’s not surprising, when so many of one’s subscribers are in the business world. We’ve already sold a bunchload of the prints to CFOs everywhere. Heh.

I must say, with so much of the personal web having been swallowed up by the big boys- Google, Facebook, Twitter, the NSA etc- the more I like the newsletter format. It still feels like I own it, it still connects with people with my work on my own terms i.e. quietly, in one’s own time, one-on-one.

The newsletter surpassed this blog long ago as the best place for seeing my best new work, for the reasons stated above. I hope you will subscribe, thanks.

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."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

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