Artist’s comments

The Sockman washes and mends old socks and lines them up on a long wooden stick, and he carries that stick on his shoulders. His big blue jacket hangs open, and you can see bundles of old socks in the pockets. He takes old socks and he mends them on the street, and he sings "Sockman! Pin 'um up, wake 'um up! Sockman gonna fix 'em up!

(A Street Called Home, Harcourt Brace and Company: San Diego, 1997.)
