Finally, some art for the walls of The Escape Pod

We at the Escape Pod have long been fans of Hugh Mcleod.  Hugh is Scottish.  Hugh is a true artist. Hugh is a great cartoonist.  Hugh is a great marketing thinker.  Hugh is a digital pioneer.   Hugh is arguably the world’s foremost blogger.  Hugh is restless.  Hugh used to live in Chicago.  Then he moved to the Scottish border region.   Then he moved to London.  And now he lives in Alpine Texas.   He is about to, finally, publish a book.   And it will be a big hit.  Because Hugh has put in the hard work over the last decade to amass an audience of devoted fans, myself included.  Hugh is quite simply a breath of fresh air.  He’s a bit of Quixotic figure in a way.  Taking on Microsoft and Dell and helping clue them in on the web hugh.0

It is one of the biggest regrets of our professional lives that a project we hoped to collaborate with Hugh on never came to fruition.   we pride ourselves on  knowing a good thing when we see it and hugh is the real deal.

So were delighted to be able to purchase a signed limited edition print of the above “cartoon” by Hugh today.  It’s one of our favorites of his many cartoons.  A print out of it  used to adorn our office wall in a previous life.  And now it will adorn our office walls once more in a more fitting manner.

Rock on Hugh!

  1. Vinny,
    Uncanny, or maybe it’s just an Irish/Celtic thing.
    Been following Gapingvoid for a long time and have shamelessly adopted “The market …” (with attribution of course) as my mantra.
    Have a great Christmas.

  2. Merry Christmas Vinny.
    I know the Yanks don’t have boxing-day but I hope you don’t have to go into work on the 26th.

  3. Hugh is a real wandering Celt Ciaran.. Nollaig mhaith leat!

  4. … is go mberimid beo ar an am seo aris.

    Had a good Christmas Eve – met an attractive young woman with a sharp (friendly) tongue about her in the pub at lunch, with her husband (an American) who had played rugby against Shannon. Hey, life is never dull if you can go on meeting interesting people, which means life is never dull.

  5. completely agree ciaran. meeting new people is a great stimulant. you just never know!
