The entrepreneur as art

Get inside the head of an entrepreneur through cartoonist and author Hugh MacLeod’s first one-man show.

“I’m Not Delusional: The Art of the Entrepreneur” is a tribute to the emotional journey of the entrepreneur.

“We believe that America’s new fascination with entrepreneurship is due to the fact that entrepreneurs are changing the landscape of this country. There has never been a better or more interesting time to be an entrepreneur, and Hugh is the only artist capturing the zeitgeist,” said Jason Korman, MacLeod’s business partner and CEO of gapingvoid, which provides companies with messaging, internal culture and leadership tools.

Success, failure, sacrifice, thrills, desperation, passion, fear, doubt, reinvention. “The idea is that entrepreneurship is about all of these emotions and challenges every day... or nearly so,” said Korman. “We want people to come away knowing that entrepreneurship isn’t simply about business plans and execution, but a mindset and life changing commitment.”

MacLeod’s art — 300 images — can be seen at The LAB Miami much of this week except for Wednesday when it is closed for a private event. Find out more at gapingvoid.com.
