San Diego Memory:My Character by Sergio Aragones!
This is probably the first drawing on this site that wasn't done by me. Until ten or so years ago, I was a yearly attendee of THE SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON (COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL). In 1992, I met the great SERGIO ARAGONES, famed for his artwork in MAD MAGAZINE and his own comic book series (which has some unexplained connection to Mark Evanier) GROO THE WANDERER. Sergio was kind enough to make me this sketch of Groo, with a surprise appearance of my own "Art" character from my COMICS BUYER'S GUIDE strips. And frankly, I can't blame Art for looking nervous! Thanks again for the happy memory, Mr. Aragones!
