Show notes [compiled by Jeff Sass:]
In this episode of the Gape Into The Void podcast, Hugh and Jason have a discussion with bestselling author, speaker, and marketer, Seth Godin. Seth has been an inspiration to many, including Hugh, and over the years gapingvoid has produced many popular images that were based upon, or included the words of Seth Godin. We even have a dedicated Seth Godin Store! Most recently, Hugh illustrated one of Seth’s three new books, “V Is For Vulnerable.

Decades ago, before my first cartoons were ever published, I had this idea that my first published work would be a children’s book.
That didn’t happen, of course. After years in the cartoonist game, my first children’s book was only just published this month. “V Is For Vulnerable”. Check it out.
Though actually, it’s not a children’s book. It’s really a book for entrepreneurs, fiendishly disguised as a children’s book.
But Shhhhhhhh! Don’t tell anybody.
This is what I wrote in the dedication:
These drawings are dedicated to my nephews and nieces, all five of them. May these words resonate with you one day, and God Forbid that they never do. Lots of Love from Uncle Hugh
I meant every word to them, I assure you.
Heck, and it isn’t even my book, not really. My friend Seth wrote the thing, it was all his idea. I just illustrated it, long after the really hard work was already done.
That being said, I’m very proud of the work nonetheless. And even more proud that Seth chose me for the job.
There are many lessons about the nature of work, love and enterprise, that we are neglecting to teach our children…
… at our peril.
This must change, if we are to thrive long-term.
Hopefully this is a step in the right direction. Kudos to Seth for writing it, and to y’all for supporting it. Thank you.

This is awesome: We did another little Slideshare presentation about how gapingvoid makes art for entrepreneurs. It only went up yesterday, and it’s already passed 35,000 views!
No matter what the glossy magazine try to tell us, being an entrepreneur is a hard, lonely, nerve-wracking business. We wanted to comunicate something that understands that.
Just like, we want to make art that understands that. Art that really connects with the world my fellow entrepreneurs ACTUALLY live in.
Like I said, awesome.
