Reading Hugh MacLeod

Hugh MacLeod, a corporate guru/artist says, "Ignore Everybody" when it comes to creativity. His book of the same title has been on the New York Times best seller list.

See his cartoons at He doesn't mince words, this boy.

I admire people who can make a living out of 'thin air'. He started making doodles on the backs of business cards and has shepherded this idea into a roaring business that seems to grow expediently.

I'm looking forward to reading his new book. Flipping through the chapter headings, I can see even though the book is aimed at corporate types and addresses creativity, a working artist can certainly benefit from reading it. After all, work ethic is work ethic.
