George Pérez: My Memory of Him

Circa 2012 – My attempt at a Pérez-like pinup

George Pérez died due to complications from pancreatic cancer on May 6th, 2022. He was a well known North American comic artist and creator.

I remember when I was a kid and was learning how to draw comics. One of my favourite artists to ape (copy as a way of learning style) was George Perez. I practiced drawing hair and eyes as I studied the comics he created.

20 years later I was tabling at a convention and the exhibitors were given an opportunity to meet with him. I was so excited! I wanted to get something signed by him! But I didn’t have any of his comics. Instead, I had some fan art posters I was selling that I had created based off of his style.

So I waited in line. George took his time with everyone and focussed on everyone equally. I was so excited about meeting him that all I could say was, “You taught me how to draw eyes and hair”

George simply smiled at me and then signed my poster.

Some day I may take my art seriously… but today is not that day.

I created some illustrations to accompany some substack articles I’m writing. which detail my process of organizing and editing some of my Dad’s earliest manuscripts.

It’s a sketch to figure out positioning within a comic panel. I want to practise more throughout the week but we’ll see how things go.
