Love Matters: Rackspace

  Dave shows off his latest Rackspace swag, a black snuggie blanket and my latest “Love Matters” t-shirt that we recently made for them. Like I said before, I know it embarrasses the grown-ups to say this, but… Love matters in Business, as much as anywhere else. Rackspace knows this as much as any client […]

Office Art Is Like Sex Or Music…

Nice to see Knoll, the illustrious furniture company trying to have the same conversation via furniture that gapingvoid tries to have via art i.e. that enviromeent affects creativity, productivity and yes, the bottom line. They have a new study out called “Future-Proofing The Startup Office”. From the De De Ce Blog: At its core, the […]

“Shaking up Pharma from the inside? Exactly.”

[Some of my work appearing at a private event at Roche Pharmaceuticals a couple of months ago.]  For the last year, gapingvoid has been working intensively with Hoffman-La Roche, the large Swiss pharmaceutical company. I drew hundreds of cartoons for them in 2013. Hundreds! All to do with fostering innovative behaviors such as entrepreneurship, risk […]

Office Art: New Metal Prints

During our Art Basel show earlier this month we made a huge splash with our newest offering: gapingvoid Aluminium Prints. People love them. They look very slick and shiny. Substantial. I dunno, they just have this very je-ne-sais-quoi about them. Right now we’re just selling little 8×10 ones on the gallery site, buit in the […]

  [“New York Story 1″: Part of The Marfa Project. Click here to enlarge etc.] Kate Helber over at Future State (a seriously smart woman, by the way) makes a good point about Change Management: A lot of it is neurological. Like many people, at the time I tended to think of organizational change as […]

Wanted: Office Art Tips!

[An un-PC motivational poster I made back in 2009.] “Office Art” is not exactly the largest niche I’ve been involved with (compared to say, advertising and marketing). Still, the more I blog about it, the more I like it, the more interesting stuff I keep uncovering. So starting today, I’m offically putting the word out: […]

“Who says office art has to suck?”

  “Who says office art has to suck?” It’s a rheotorical question we ask in the banner ad at the bottom of the cartoon newsletter we send out 5 times a week. It’s a fair question, certainly one not asked nearly often enough. Especially with the contemporary gallery scene going nowhere fast.       […]

Mindset Cartoon

[Originally sent out in today’s newsletter etc.] There’s a reason that I put mindset at the center of this universe. A person’s mindset has a lot to do with their behavior, and how they approach and react to business and personal challenges (and opportunities).  That’s why in business, mindset has a lot to do with […]

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.

Len Schlesinger
Former President, Babson College

"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.
