Ever wondered about all the art that doesn't quite make it into (or onto) The New Yorker? This Saturday, June 30, at 6pm, two excellent artists affiliated with that illustrious publication will join us in store to reveal both cover art and cartoons that were deemed too shocking, naughty, dark, or just plain dumb to be published. Barry Blitt and Matthew Diffee will be signing copies of two hilarious books that assemble these renegade cartoons and cover art pieces, The Best of the Rejection Collection: 293 cartoons that were too dumb, too dark, or too naughty for The New Yorker, and Blown Covers: New Yorker covers you were never meant to see.
For more on this event, check out this helpful post, written up by Julia! Also please note that Anita Kunz will no longer be able to attend this event. Apologies to all of you who were excited to see her. We'll have a selection of her work available for purchase.
We hope to see you tonight!
