When you give a talk on rejection the main worry of course is that no one will turn up. Thankfully quite a few people did attend a recent evening entitled The Art Of Rejection hosted by three members of the PCO at Westminster Reference Library in central London.

Jeremy Banx, The Surreal McCoy and Glenn Marshall took to the library floor, sharing their rejected work and the ways in which they deal with this inevitable part of a creative person’s life. [Spoiler alert: they just keep drawing more cartoons.]

 One audience member later quipped “it’s the start of a new way of working. Now I send all my drawings directly to the bin, which reduces anxiety and frees up valuable time.”
