Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez Con Sketches

I attended my first San Diego Comic Con in 1987 to promote my first solo comic, Pirate Corp$! #1. I made a few bucks in Artist's Alley doing superhero sketches and selling copies of the comic and spent a good part of what I made on these three sketches that I commissioned from Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez. They're pretty much all I can recall buying that week (other than dinner at Jack-In-The-Box and a lot of Coronas).

These drawings mean a lot to me for a number of reasons, and I will treasure them always. Corny as that sounds.












Notice Gilbert's signature. I told you I was a nervous wreck around cartoonists I admired.

What a dweeb!
