Esh, some of these hurt to read. Not from the perspective of the artist but from the writer of the rejection. Can you imagine listening to Madonna and turning her away from your record label and then seeing what became of her career? Or saying “no thank you” to Andy Warhol as he tries to gift one of his drawings to your museum. Ouch. I’m sure these letters stung for the recipients but they also must have motivated the artists to keep pushing through. To me that’s the common denominator when you read success stories in the arts: Talent and fortitude.

This is hilarious! Contrary to popular belief it’s always a roller coaster ride to success.
