12 Incredibly Ill-Advised Rejection Letters
If you could turn back time.
1. From a record company, to U2.
2. From Disney, to a female artist.
3. From a record company, to The Who.
4. From NASA, to a female candidate.
5. From the BBC, to John Cleese.
6. From a publisher, to Gertrude Stein.
7. From MOMA, to Andy Warhol.
8. From a record label, re: Madonna.
I enjoyed listening to Madonna. This production, arrangements and she are very strong. The direction is a good one, in my opinion. The only thing missing from this project is the material. I liked "I Want You", "Get Up" and "High Society", but I did not like "Love On The Run" at all. I do not feel she is ready yet, but I do hear the basis for a strong artist. I will pass for now, but I will wait for more.
Good luck and thank you for thinking of me.
9. From Marvel, to Jim Lee.
"Dear Mr. Lee,
You work looks as if it were done by four different people. Your best pencils are on page 7, panel with agents (lower left corner), and close up of face. The rest of the pencils are of much weaker quality. The same can be said for your inking. Resubmit when your work is consistent and when you have learned to draw hands.
