About the Author

Hugh MacLeod is the cartoonist and acclaimed blogger behind and the bestselling author of Ignore Every­body and Evil Plans. After a decade working as an advertising copywriter, he started to publish online his "cartoons drawn on the back of business cards," which eventually he turned into a full-time job. He is known for both his art and for his thoughts on marketing, and has become a popular speaker.


Ignore Everybody

If the full title of a book is “Ignore Everybody and 39 Other Keys to Creativity,” you can’t be blamed for expecting 40 new items in your creativity toolkit.

And, let’s face it, we can’t think of you as a genius of some sort if you’ve already guessed the first one. Or the fact that we’ll list all 40 of them in a second.


Let’s go!

1. Ignore everybody.

That’s the basic premise of Hugh MacLeod’s book: if you want to become something important, you need to be able to ignore everybody.

It’s basically a paradox: the better your idea is, the more original artist you are, the less applicable the advice of those around you will be.

Just think of all the Van Goghs and Mozarts from history who died penniless because they believed what others told them!

You mustn’t repeat their mistake. If you think you’re on to something, you’re probably the only person who knows that.

Nobody knows the best way to deliver your unique idea, no matter how smart they seem. Every artist has to find a way to make a living and share their work, preferably in a way that doesn't ruin both. Finding your own voice and sharing that voice with the world is the most important thing.
