There has never been a retrospective exhibition of Ronald Searle's work in northern California. 'Searle In America' will be a survey of his work made in America on reportage assignments for HOLIDAY magazine during the 60s heyday of magazine illustration.
The exhibition will be staged this November at the Cartoon Art Museum, San Francisco. To raise funds for shipping of original Searle artwork to California and printing costs for the catalogue I've asked friends from the animation/illustration community to contribute original Searle-inspired artwork to a fundraiser auction. Over the summer we auctioned all of these wonderful tributes by today's top cartoonists. Feel free to leave comments on your favorite.
