We are born to create.

[Drawing from 1993. 9 x 6 inches. Click on image to see enlarged etc.] I really don’t like the word “creative”. It’s kinda wooly. Kinda meaningless. Kinda grating. That being said, “creative” is also kinda the reason we’re here. We are born creative beings. We are born to create. And knowing this, we can either […]

@rackspace: greeting card for irate customers

So I drew this cartoon earlier today for Rackspace. An idea for a greeting card. An “Apology” card. For when Rackspace screws up [ALL companies screw up occasionally]. Just a way of saying sorry. Of staying human. It could be printed on to a card and put in an envelope. Or it could just be […]

“what is possible?”

What is possible? Well… I draw cartoons. And you do your thing… All are prayer to the same god, are they not? The trick is, of course, in teaching yourself how to see it as prayer, and not as meaningless toil. Godspeed.

print profile: “c.f.a.”

From the gapingvoid Gallery: I drew this when I was living in New York, in the late ‘nineties. If you actually listen to me speak, if you actually read my prose writing, you’ll find I don’t swear very often. But somehow it works in cartoons. Especially ones created in New York. This print is one […]

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.
