Seth Godin and Me on Intrepid Radio

Thanks to Todd Schnick and for having Seth Godin and I on his Intrepid Radio Podcast. We started off talking about the children’s book Seth and I made together, “V Is For Vulnerable”, but the conversation went way beyond that. Seth, as always, was his very lucid self. As always, he’s pushing us to raise […]

My First Children’s Book… which isn’t really a Children’s Book

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 […]

Seth Godin’s office

[Thanks to Seth Godin for sending in these two photos: First, himself sitting underneath the “Dip” piece (he added the speech bubble himself) and then a “gapingvoid Wall” he has in his office of some of the the work I’ve done for him over the years. VERY Cool.] [From yesterday’s newsletter:] In 2007, when Seth […]

“Linchpin” or The Magic Success Unicorn: You decide.

  Today in the newsletter we introduced four new “Linchpin” prints, based on, of course, Seth Godin’s seminal book, Linchpin. [UPDATE: Big thanks to Seth for blogging it earlier today!] Seth’s work is kind of like my own… Not everybody gets it, which is OK, because there are PLENTY of people who do. And that’s […]

“I’m sorry my last book was so long, but I didn’t have time to write a short one”

[Click on image to activate animation etc.] This is one of the cooler “Social Object Factory” mini-projects we’ve done lately- a little animated Gif for Seth Godin’s lovely little book, Poke The Box. [Yes. I know. We didn’t use my drawing style this time. The Factory is really about Social Objects, not about Hugh etc.] […]

The new hardback copy arrived…

Look what my publishers just sent me. The first hardback copy of “Freedom Is Blogging In Your Underwear”  [Kindle version here]. Awwww…. I’m so happy! I love the purple cover… it’s  kinda appropriate:  It was after reading Seth Godin’s “Purple Cow” that the idea of writing books occurred to me. “That looks like fun, I can […]

The Future Of Publishing: What Really Matters

Radio Litopia has a TERRIFIC audio interview with my friend, Seth Godin, on the future of publishing,  and how his latest enterprise, The Domino Project, is attempting to embrace it. Seth’s take on the future of publishing is similar to what I’ve been saying for a while: “The book doesn’t matter. The conversation matters.” A book, […]

This cartoon was sent out today in the newsletter. The idea was inspired by the book by my friend, Seth Godin. Read Seth’s original 2005 blog post on the subject. It’s considered a classic. We live in HUGELY exciting times. You do know that, right?

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.
