Wet Socks

I've got a drawing today on the COVERED BLOG, an awesome site where artists pay tribute to other comics covers. I "covered" one of my favorite books by one of my favorite cartoonists, Surviving Saskatoon by David Collier. The top one is mine, this one is Collier's:The strip "Milgaard & Me" is a mix of biography, auto-biography, and true crime that really hits my narrative sweet spot. I thought of Collier's cover when I was painting the cover to my Drawn & Quarterly book, which treads similiar biography / graphic journalism territory.(If you were curious how to pronounce the name of this blog, the first part rhymes with my grandpa's war-nickname "wet sock".)

At first glance I thought that the top one was Collier. Great job!
