Gapingvoid - Bad Things


Until it happens to you

With his own characteristic adversity-facing humour, Hugh MacLeod reminds us of failure that not only surrounds our lives, but also will occasionally infiltrate our own. Something we need embrace more often in the spirit of appreciation…

  • “When you’re a kid, you hear about bad things happening, earthquakes, foreign wars, car crashes.. but of course at that point of life, they’re still kinda out of reach. Abstract. Things that happen to OTHER people, or so it seems then. Then stick around for long enough, and then some of those bad things land on your plate as well. Sad and unfortunate, but it happens to all of us, eventually. I drew this cartoon as a little snarky jab at that human ability to delude ourselves.”
