    Default Swipe File: Deadpool And Harley Quinn

    Deadpool convention sketch by Rob Liefeld, from a request...



    Harley Quinn cover, back when she had a title of her own.





    In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn?t judge, it?s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.

    eh... the Rockwell painting that the Harley cover actually pays homage to would have been a better swipe file

    I'd like to think that Liefeld has that same vacant, blissed-out and glassy-eyed look on his face whenever he gets a haircut.

    Not really a swipe if it's a sketchcover request from a paying customer, with the drawing being what the paying customer requested.

    The first 10-12 issues of Harley's series were really fun and the art by the Dodsons was extremely sweet to the eyes.

    As for the "Swipe", if I commission a sketch that pays homage to another picture will that automatically qualify as a swipe here as well? Or what if Adam Hughes get's paid for a sketch that is reminiscent of one of his own covers? Is he swiping of himself?
