Cartoon Museum's Tribute To Alison Brown
"Joe Sullivan, [The museum’s director] ,has told the Telegraph that its collection is ‘over-represented with works by white cisgender men..." "Joe Sullivan, said 'The Cartoon Museum, [is] moving towards displaying less Hogarths and more modern and diverse work.'" Please say it ain't so. If it is, how do we get rid of Joe Sullivan?
Hope everyones had a good Christmas. Just released the latest issue of Last Geek in Space. It's a Cartoon Museum special featuring Mark Stafford and Steve Marchant. Mark's GN with Dave Hine The Bad Bad Place was one of my fave reads of the last year. Episode's on all podcast platforms or the link below! Cheers.
