Hughtreats

  How lovely. My friends over at Rackspace’s social media group sent me and the team a wee box of “Hughtreats”, based on the litle critters I drew for them. They were made by Annie’s Petite Treats in San Antonio. The idea of these little critters was to unoffically, or at least, indirectly represent the […]

On the transient nature of things…

This is a little doodle I made back in the day, popular “Web 2.0″ names, businesses and buzzwords from around late 2005 or so. How many of them are still front of mind, collectively? Not many. No Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or […]

Edited my “About” page…

[I added the following to the "About" page. Thought it would be useful to clarify what it is exactly gapingvoid does for a living. Hope it helps etc.] “Social Media happens around Social Objects, not the other way around.” At the core of any social media campaign, there are Social Objects. Social Objects are the […]

Testimonials

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.

The New Republic
Lydia Depillis

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.
