This is a sketch drawn by George, for me, while attending WIZARD WORLD
in Chicago this past August! Drawing measures 14" x 17" and is on 3-4
ply BRISTOL BOARD! HE ONLY DID FOUR (4) FULL BODY SKETCHES over the 3
day comic con! A "sizeable" donation for ACTOR, a non profit
organization, that helps with retired comic book illustrators and
writers, got me the sketch initially! A GREAT GUY (George), A GREAT
ORGANIZATION (ACTOR), AND A GREAT SKETCH (Batman/ Spidey)! Last picture
is of George and myself after the drawing was completed!

Over Guice's left shoulder is super-artist George
Perez, whose ass was never seen all weekend
because it was planted on that chair for the entirety. In San Diego,
Perez did 203 sketches over the course of four days and Preview Night.
While WizardWorld is only three days, the lines were just as long and
just as persistant. When I get the final tally, I'll be sure to print it here.
