At Boing Boing Rusty Blazenhoff writes of rejection.
Specifically Drew Dernavich and his pile of cartoons rejected by The New Yorker.
…That search led me to Brooklyn-based Drew Dernavich (and, boy, I sure am glad I found him!). On top of The New Yorker, he’s been published in Time, the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and other well-known publications. He’s also a graphic recorder, aka a “visual note-taker.”
On February 6, he posted this photo. It shows the reality of his business as demonstrated by two piles of paper: his rejected cartoons and his accepted ones
After posting the photo of accepted v. rejected submissions Drew began selling the rejects to those interested; naturally Rusty was interested.
