What's Wrong? Mush! Mush, I say!

This is my latest What's Wrong? for Highlights' December issue which is available now. I had terrible fun with this piece in doing the research and in drawing it (see the first sketch below). The Iditarod Sled Dog Race ends in Nome, Alaska so I was able to use Google maps street view to view the finish line and even some of the buildings. The man winning the race is Dick Wilmarth, the first winner of the Iditarod in 1973. The woman pictured is Libby Riddles, the first woman to win the Iditarod in 1985. The drums dispersed throughout the crowd are Eskimo (or Inuit) drums used to celebrate. Just for fun, here is a delightful video by the Inuit singing group, PAMYUA.

Hey, Chuck! This is just wonderful. I'm glad to see Highlights is still doing "What's Wrong." I just love it!
