Austin is the killer app, says Hugh MacLeod
Long time SXSW Interactive fans will remember Hugh MacLeod’s artwork gracing the swag bag. Since then the Texas based Scottish artist has gone from strength to strength, and when his latest artwork hit The Baby’s email box, we kinda regret not having a physical office to buy a print and hang it up.
There’s something special about Austin, a special confluence of factors (climate, quality of life, hippie-meets-music-meets-
cowboy-meets-high-tech-meets- barbecue-meets-Mexican-food) that makes it one of the most spectacularly livable cities in the Western world. I wanted to create a cartoon that gave justice to that idea, an idea that the geeks would understand.
Prints can be ordered direct from Hugh over at Gaping Void.
