Charlotte Heroes Con 1993. Perez's first convention appearance in a long time up until then.

I managed to get a Perez sketch several years ago at the Heroes
Convention in Charlotte, NC, when I just happened to be in the right
place at the right time. Again, he was sketching for a local charity
(children with burn injuries, I believe) and it was announced during the
show. A full figure pencil sketch was $50 and he was swarmed with
requests. I was one of the first few people in line and commissioned him
to draw the Scarlet Witch.
(Jun 1993), art by George Pérez/Wade Von Grawbadger at HEROES CONVENTION 1993. Commissioned by cyberpunk12
I forget how much, but it seems he was
charging $25 more to have it inked. Since he was so swamped and was
having to rush a bit to meet demand, I opted to have another inker
handle the sketch... Wade Von Grawbadger. The pencils were a bit rough,
so some of its patented Perez-ish facial qualities were lost in the
inking... but it's still a fave. I'll post a pic later.
George Perez has to be one of the best in
the biz when it comes to charity work. He used to be a staple at the
Heroes shows, but hasn't made it in recent years. He's a great guy,
always friendly, and one of the most talented artists to ever work in
