'Searle In America' opens today!

'Searle In America' is now open at the Cartoon Art Museum, San Francisco.

The opening night went really well.  We auctioned the last of the fundraiser artwork items and raised another $3000 for the museum!

Federico Fiecconi, curator of the Bruno Bozzetto exhibition at the Walt Disney Family Museum dropped by.

Disney Feature Animation director John Musker was in San Francisco to be part of the panel discussion on Bruno Bozzetto.  He is a huge Searle fan and helped assemble some of the pieces in the exhibition.

Here's a sneak-peek at some of the pieces in the show

Here's the impeccable work graphic designer Susan Bradley did on the catalog.

UK exhibitions

Chris Beetles' annual show 'The Illustrators' is coming up and features this mythical Searle picture.see a couple more Searle pictures on offer and the rest of the exhibition here

Abbott & Holder have a selection of Searle letter forms on sale here (previously auctioned here)
They also have this Express Theatre Column cartoon (circa 1955) and can't quite identify everyone in it. Best guesses: Max Miller, Frank Sinatra, Arthur Rank, Greer Garson . . . can anyone help?

The Cartoon Gallery in Chester, England will have a selection of Searle lithos, etchings and original drawings at their booth during the Chester Arts Fair November 16-17
