Looking for a Valentine’s Day gift? Check out the gapingvoid Love Pop-up Store:

[One of my all-time favorites: “I Choose This Life”] [Visit the gapingvoid Love Store here] I always like drawing a new “Love Cartoon”. That being said, I don’t like drawing them too often, because then they get formulaic; and Love should not be formulaic. The good news is, over the years they’ve added up. We […]

“Love Matters.”

The groovy cats at Rackspace asked me to design a new t-shirt for them; this cartoon was the first (but not the last) idea I came up with. 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 […]

Why “Only connect” is my favorite marketing strategy.

Thanks to Chris for sending me this photo, via Twitter. The gapingvoid Valentine print he ordered, just as he was opening the box. A delighted customer, so it seems. Hurrah! I love getting stuff like this from people, and not just because “Social Proof is the new marketing” yada, yada, yada. As artists and/or marketers […]

We sent them out to everybody who ordered one of our “Love Prints” in time for Valentine’s Day etc etc. How do you make something ubiquitous seem […]

the science of love. the science of eHarmony.com.

Like Loic and I discussed many years ago, the best thing about being a blogger is the people you get to meet. It’s also true of being a cartoonist, as well. Cartooning opens doors. Three weeks ago, the whole cartoonist thing somehow led me to Santa Monica, CA, sitting in the office of Dr. Gian Gonzaga, […]

“take the cream off the top, leave the milk behind”

[“Love Forever”, which I sent out in the newsletter recently. You can buy the print here etc.] Earlier I was talking on the phone to my friend and mentor, Jerry Colonna. I drew the wee monster ‘Cube Grenade” on his blog a few months ago. During our conversation, while I was moaning and groaning about […]

[“Almost As Good As Chocolate”. Buy the print here etc.] With Valentine’s Day being on Sunday, and my next “Hugh’s Daily Frickin’ Cartoon” not being sent out till Monday morning, I’m happy to report that the run of Valentine-inspired schmaltz that I’ve been bombarding my e-mail list with these last two weeks, is now over.

if in doubt

[“If In Doubt”. Buy the print here etc.] This is the cartoon that was sent out with today’s “Daily Frickin’ Cartoon” Newsletter. Here’s the blurb that went with it. Love is the easiest thing in the world to do, until it isn’t. Until we get overwhelmed by “Stuff”. The black lines in the cartoon represent […]

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.
