Every time we shoot a video or take pictures in my office I always get a slew of emails asking where I got the huge Purple Cow art piece.

Purple Cow Art

I picked it up from famed cartoonist/artist Hugh Macleod gapingvoid’s art gallery about a year or so ago…

I love it! It’s a huge reminder to me every time I look up to build something unique… something that stands out from the crowd… a purple cow.

Yesterday I was honored to be selected as Hugh’s business card of the day:

  1. You should totally start handing those biz cards out at conventions Shoe!

  2. I caught that when you posted it on twitter. I didn’t realize that it was the same guy that made the posted. Cool shit.

  3. Fantastic card! Great attitude during times like these. Who did the artwork for your card?

    1. I think that the featured artist, Hugh Macleod was responsible for the artwork. 🙂

  4. I never know what to expect around here. One day, advertising tips. The next day, a special guest blogger, followed by technical tips, and then back to general business. Today, it’s art! Too fun!

  5. Sweet poster….and business card! Exactly what animal is that on your biz card?

  6. Wow. Great stuff. Anyone who has spent any time in corporate will really appreciate his work. Thanks for sharing this Jeremy!

  7. I am still waiting for the paintball gas station. Talk about innovation and creativity. I would buy my gas there in a heartbeat.

  8. You probably made Hugh’s day. I wouldn’t mind waking up and seeing “Andrew Mason Rocks” in my reader. In fact, the bike shop would love it.

  9. wow. some of those are expensive. maybe there’s a nice postcard for a $1.00? that’s more along the lines of my budget.

  10. Call me old school, but I don’t really think of that as art. Peter Paul Rubens, Matisse, DaVinci… That is art. Cartoons shouldn’t be considered art.

    1. Disagree. His concepts are fresh, and I love the line drawings. Hugh’s art is a prime example that irregardless of the media used, pure talent will definitely shine.

    2. The artist kind of makes fun of art in one of his pieces, so I’m sure he’s heard this before. I’m with you – I love the masters.

  11. Ha! Finally! Someone with a sense of humor! Who hasn’t had these conversations? “But I’m too OLD to be this f^cked, dammit!”

  12. I heard from a friend of mine Hugh also markets wines from South Africa. She met him once in an exhibition featuring the artist’s drawings in Texas, which also highlighted some of the wines he advertised. An artist who’s a wine fan, too? I am in love. 🙂

  13. Kudos, Shoe. Hugh’s a great guy. I watched a video of Hugh once where he said that “the most important thing a creative person can learn professionally is where to draw the red line that separates what you are willing to do, and what you are not.” My deep thought for the evening.

  14. Does Hugh listen to The Aquabats? The other artworks in his site surely remind me of MC Commander and the rest of the playful band.

  15. A purple cow. A green dragon-like creature. Fish talking. Curvy lines that seem to never end. What is Hugh on while he’s making these? ROFL

  16. “All artists are entrepreneurs and all entrepreneurs are artists”. Now that’s something to think about.

  17. I just noticed that the cow “fur” is made up of small details like people, building and other elements. Very Cool.

  18. Purple steak? I’ll try it well done. The business card looks very engaging!

  19. Schoe the Purple cow owner. LMAO. Congratulations! Those cards are really great.

  20. Differentiate or Die!! There is a book by that name as well, no?
    The purple cow is an apt reminder for, I am sure! 🙂
    And yeah, Viva Espana!! 🙂
