Reserve Yours Here

Hugh has decided to do some personal commissions for Valentines Day, since last year these we such a big hit! He originally wanted to limit it to five, but we’ve already surpassed that in requests, so he will be setting aside a bit more time to draw 10 commissions this year.

You probably know that Hugh’s basic commercial commissions are several thousand dollars, but when it comes to love, Hugh’s a bit of a soft touch. So he’s agreed to do the remaining Valentines commissions for $750 (see terms below).

You can see couple of the personal commissions Hugh did last year below for gapingvoid friends  Tom McCallum and Robert Dow.

You’ll receive a framed 11″ * 14″ signed print, included in that price plus a digital file of the image. If you want to a larger print HERE are the costs.
After Valentine’s these private commissions will be $1,500, and the full private commissions will be $3,500, so if you’ve been thinking about buying a one of a kind gift for V day or any other special occasion for that matter, this is it.

Just email Laura with any queries.

Here is the fine print:

  • EMAIL US specifying favorite colors you would like Hugh to use
  • A paragraph or two about the person or topic you want him to draw about.
  • No branded or business promotion topics, please.
  • The offer is for a personal and not corporate work.
  • There will be only one image created, and the only revisions will be for typos or errors.

This is what Shirlaws’ Tom McCallum (featured above) said about us last year:

Shirlaws is a business coaching organisation that operates around the world. One of our core assets is that we understand entrepreneurs. We combine that with our understanding that it is the blend and balance of cultural and commercial areas that drive success and value for businesses.

“We are massive fans of Hugh and Gaping Void. Our walls are papered with prints of his inspirational artwork, and last year I was so happy to have him do a “Valentine’s commission” for me that captured my personal intent pictorially. As our favourite virtuous circle from Hugh says : Inspire, Be Inspired. Keep inspiring us !”

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.
