Maggie The Mechanic by AdamHughes Maggie The Mechanic by AdamHughes
Client: Private Commission
Media: pencil, PITT Pen, COPIC Marker, Prismacolor pencil

This was a 'guaranteed' sketch from a con this summer, and the eBay winner (that's how we let people fight it out) picked Maggie the Mechanic from the Hernandez Bros.' LOVE AND ROCKETS. One of the all-time greatest comics, period.

Maggie has very good proportions and you gave her a strong friendly mood and dynamism. I can tell the winner of this piece is fortunate.

Love Adam's style. Ever since the two issue Gen13 (always had a thing for athletic redheads anyways) BUT aren't maggie's boots supposed to be wrestling boots?

My convention sketches run $200-$400. Alternately, you could try to win the guaranteed sketch via eBay that we do before every convention, but that can get expensive.

Thank you for the kind words!
And since I've been scammed by too many people claiming terminal illnesses, you'd have to prove you were dying.

That's just a really nice piece. Not overdramatic or anything; just fun and vibrant. I like that Maggie is a bit more demure than many of your heroines. And man, can you rock with pencil and markers or what!!
