David Simpson loses OKlahoma Cartoonist Hall of Fame honor
In light of the recent cases of David Simpson’s plagiarism in the Urban Tulsa, the Toy & Action Figure Museum has retracted Simpson’s 2005 induction into the Oklahoma Cartoonists Hall of Fame.
Here is the statement in full by Musuem Director Lisa Driskill:
Due to the recent revelation of another apparent incidence of plagiarism on the part of David Simpson, who had been inducted into the Oklahoma Cartoonists Hall of Fame in 2005, before he had been terminated by the Tulsa World for plagiarizing another cartoonist’s work, the Oklahoma Cartoonists committee now hereby announces the formal retraction of that honor.
