Nice work when you can get it: Seth talks about creating The Walrus summer reading cover

An interesting interview between Walrus art director Brian Morgan and cartoonist Seth about the process they went through to come up with the cover(s) for the magazine's summer reading issue...and other stuff, including Seth's creative influences and working methods. For magaziners, it's irresistible. 

The cover above (one of two that readers were asked to select from) was eventually published.  Seth's favourite is below, but readers, the editors and Morgan liked the other one.
"To tell the truth, much of my career has been divided quite clearly between my commercial work and my real work (art done primarily for myself), [says Seth]. It’s nice when occasionally these two worlds meet and I can do work (that has a fee attached) that isn’t produced entirely for the paycheque!"
