Festival of Cartoon Art notes: Roz Chast
Roz Chast began selling cartoons to the New Yorker in 1978. She’s been a fixture in the publication ever since. Her presentation was a gallery of some of her best work over her amazing career.
- Roz Chast: It would be great to draw one cartoon a week & get published, but the reality each cartoonist sends in what is called their batch of forty or so cartoons and only one or two is selected. Lots of rejection.
- Roz Chast: recounting her 1st cartoon in New Yorker. A cartoon she didn’t think anyone would find funny. Within a year she had a contract.
- Roz Chast: now showing a slideshow of cartoons. Great stuff.
- Q: Do you ever resubmit cartoons that were rejected? Roz: Sure after time. A lot of times I can come back to a gag months later and find a way to make it better and then resubmit it.
