About This Image

We've had the honor of working with Robert Cooper, PHD. on a project to illustrate some really amazing books that he has in the works and will be releasing later this year. As a by-product of this, we've been delving into the neuroscience behind why Hugh's cool drawings are so darn effective for changing cultures, attitudes, behaviors, etc.

It's always been an interesting challenge explaining to button-down corporate execs how Hugh's cartoons can help transform their business. You can imagine some of the blank stares we've encountered in meetings ;-) Happily, we've discovered that having those conversations are a lot less challenging once we explain the science. It all comes back to how the brain is wired to remember images and that "visual" is the future of communications.

This idea of habits was a part of a discussion with Dr. Cooper about 'speed to target' and how to get the most organizational change with the least effort. We are controlled by our habits. We can intend to do something, or "try", but success won't happen if the action is in conflict with our existing habits. In short: Change your habits, and change your life.

I encourage you to think about your life and all the things that you intend to do, but never quite make happen. You'll see that there is almost always a conflict with an existing habit.

This image is a direct quote from Dr. Cooper and it is a reminder of the power of habit. In your life, in your business, amongst your team.

Build positive habits and transform your life.

Ah, yes, and lots of nudges by quirky gapingvoid drawings push people towards changing behaviors, and ultimately, forming new habits.

A Word on Framing - Or, why you should let us do it for you:

Having spent your hard earned cash on a beautiful piece of art we strongly recommend professional framing.

Our limited edition giclée prints and serigraphs are printed on the best archival paper available. It is designed to last a very, very long time. We've seen clients who have taken both routes; inexpensive poster frames, which will ensure that the print will not survive the fullness of time, and top end, proper museum type framing.

We have contracted with a local framer, so that you can get a really high quality professionally framed print for probably half of what your frame shop would charge.

We frame our giclée prints using a high quality mat between the print and the plexiglass. For our larger serigraphs we make shadow box frames so that the artwork is set back from the UV plexiglass, and the artwork is floating, 'hinged' to a back board that will make it stand out and look amazing. The moldings we offer are 1" 5/8 (4.25cm) minimalist sleek black or white matte lacquered wood.

Special framing requests are welcome. Questions? email us at art@gapingvoid.com
