Art Auction: Glamourpuss #3 Cover Mock-Up

Auction: Glamourpuss #3 
Cover Mock-Up
(Click image to enlarge)
This offering is a full-scale mock-up of the cover page for Glamourpuss #3. Glamourpuss herself is a photocopy-printout on white paper. Sim has hand-lettered the type and brushed on watercolour, with some type instructions in the margin. It looks like a page ripped from a quickly brushed coloring book. The final published comic book, of course, had digital coloring and was typeset, with the final placement of the type slightly altered. 

Bonus: the tracing paper from the zombie variant cover of the same issue, plus a b&w print-out of Sim's mock-up digitally typeset, which you can see is also different from the published comic.
