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!
