I'd never heard of the "Black and White Explosion", either. Maybe I was too young, or too far away from comic shops. So I thought '80s black and white. Most of my favorite work ever was from this era so it was a tough choice.
I chose Doug Allen's 'Steven' because it was always hilarious, surreal and fun to look at. Drawing it was tough, since he seemed to use no construction and I find it hard to draw without it. Didn't have much time, so here's a couple of sketchbook pages. I had to leave out Snap-E-Tom and some others because I ran out of time. I kept the drawings in his style, messed up arms, feet and all.
