Repeat after me…”I am NOT a freak!”

Have you visited GapingVoid? Or better yet, have you read Hugh MacLeod’s book: Ignore Everybody And 39 Other Keys to Creativity?

Hugh draws inspiring cartoons on the back of business cards. I like this one about going your own way because it nicely sums up what the heck I’ve been doing for the past 12 years (there was me thinking I was stumbling around in the dark when, in fact, I was leaving the mainstream behind).

It’s easy to feel you’re a complete freak when you go against the grain, but as Hugh points out, “Some­ti­mes you have to leave it [the mainstream], to find out who you REALLY are.”
