illustration friday: rejection


I'm cheating this week even though I haven't participated in IF for awhile. I Googled 'rejection' and then chose some images, Photoshopped a few and made a mosaic.

This made me smile! even though rejection stings and even really hurts I now can look back at those times and know why most of my rejections occurred. Not all, though...

The bottom one says it all: "Rejection is not fatal."
It follows on from the last post.

Rejections can be healthy. I have learned to be grateful for them, in the long run they help you concentrate on the really important things or persons, and make you hardier too. ;-)

Look at rejection this way: "You fool, you don't know what you are missing!" Works like magic :-)

I like "I think you suck" best. It's the masochist in me. During my grueling crits in landscape architecture studio these were the kinds of things that I'd hear. Not directed towards me, but my work or other's work. Of course these weren't the words spoken, but, in my mind the criticism/rejection always sounded like "I think you suck". How do you separate the work from the artist? As a result of those sessions and the juries, I do have pretty thick skin.

Although we do get rejected in our lives, we don't have to take it on board. We have a choice how to feel. In fact, we can reject rejection!

i like, i like.

rejection is almost fatal...at least it feels like it in the moment. i read a while back that our brain registers rejection as physical pain. (i.e. it cannot tell the difference)

i'm not surprised.

'Rejection is not fatal' jumped out at me, too. I think I'll adopt it as my motto!

Terrific idea! I think you've pulled of a "more than the sum of its parts" thing here. In addition to filling out this week's theme, you added a bit of history and wit.

And I've been too busy to hit iFriday every week too. If only Penolope would pay us all ...

Rejection is not fatal

Ah that is the best line and puts it all in a hopeful perspective!

Nice approach! Strangely coherent mosaic given all the different bits that compose it!

Great to see you back, and you know there's no such thing as cheating when you've applied your creative bent to it... Really like the guy in the upper right using his axe as an axe. Sorta downer topic this week, eh?

Every creative should have on their wall!

You should make a bunch of cards and sell them to publishersm and art and design buyers to replace the standard rejection letter. ;-)
