Cartoon Limbo Reception Friday, January 5, 2007

Cartoon Limbo, an exhibit that dwells on rejections of cartoonists like Schulz, Mort Walker, Maurice Sendak, Crockett Johnson and others (even myself), opens tonight.

From Time Out New York:

"Racy riffs like the Stan Goldberg one here, didn't make the cut either. 'I don't think I ever got a reason,' Goldberg laughs. The gagster submitted it to one of the lowbrow 'men's adventure' pulps like ARGOSY (PG-rated by today's porny lad-magazine standards). 'It's just timing and the editor's mood when he sees it. Nine times out of ten, if you'd submit it again, they'd accept it.'"


Anyway ....

Reception is from 6pm to 9pm.

(Even though this whole idea sounds similar to the Matt Diffee edited REJECTION COLLECTION and Craig Yoe's upcoming ARF FORUM which will have 'dirty drawings by clean cartoonists' (preview at Craig's site here), it's just one of those "great minds think alike" things. That said, yes, the gallery exhibit does share a similar idea with these books.)
