Liz Strauss


I stole this off the Internet; a photograph taken by my old Twitter pal, Amber Osborne of a print I designed for Liz Strauss’ recent #SOBcon conference.

A conference which, if the Twittersphere is to be believed, was a huge success.

Liz and I have known each other for a while now; we usually bump into each other at SXSW and hang out. She is one cool, groovy lady. [Her Twitter page is here.]

She once did this great talk about the importance of, “Finding the people who won’t let you fail”, which I think is a beautiful thought [YouTube video here], so I made it into a drawing.

I also heard that Liz has cancer. That is the saddest news possible, it really is, yet there was Liz turning up to the SOB confernce in spite of her illness, surrounded by people who think the world of her. It was moving to witness from afar.

God go with you, Liz. Like I said, you are one cool, groovy lady. Rock on.


  1. Hugh, thank you SO much for your contributions to SOBCon this year, and for the fabulous prints you designed for us.

    I wish you all the best, and hope to get a chance to thank you personally soon.
