So we have this Flemish newspaper, and on their website they’ve started publishing an evening edition, and for this publication, they’re looking for cartoons, and that’s why they came to me. Pretty cool story so far, right? Now, their idea was to let me (and others) send them whatever I came up with and if they like it, they’ll buy it. Not my typical way of working, but hey: exposure, right?
However, they’ve rejected everything I’ve thrown at them so far. Ouch. But hey, maybe someone else (with a different sense of humour) will enjoy them. So I offer you… my rejects!
Mind you, my international friends, these cartoons are in Dutch… The first one is translatable however.
“Great news, honey! The doctor said I have genial warts!”
Now I’m afraid the next one not only is untranslatable, but also really inexplicable to non-Flemish people. So please pardon our little topical inside joke here
I have this feeling more rejected cartoons can be expected soon. Stay tuned!
