Everyone needs an Evil Plan

In the early 2000's Hugh MacLeod was barely eeking out a living as a freelance copywriter in Cumbria, England but one night he had an idea and told his friend about it. "I'm going to write a blog and publish my cartoons on it", he told a friend. "What's a blog?", his friend responded. The rest is, of course, history. In 2009, with the publication of his first book, Ignore Everybody, Hugh became a Wall Street Journal top ten author for a business book that combined earthly creative logic with out of this world cartoons. This year, with his second book, Evil Plans, he tackles the questions of balancing love and work. Fast Company covers that book here with a nifty slide show. Check it out. We hope to have Hugh as a guest of aSaigon/CreativeMorning when he's in Asia next. Stay tuned.
