“To Hell with the Art World. Life is short.”

[NB: It’s Art Basel week here in Miami, and I’m sorry if this blog post seems a bit rattled, but it’s been insane around here.] 1. First off, my “I’m Not Delusional Show” has been a fantastic success so far. What can I say? People love it. It’s not even the big weekend yet and […]

Best Selling Author

CEO, Zappos

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