Just found this article on Bleeding Cool.

I'm really kind of bummed out, because fixed pricing would have made obtaining a sketch affordable; and I missed my opportunity to get a sketch at Mid Ohio Con last year.

It's nice that he'll still offer it on ebay for folks that can afford it, and that's the problem for me. As a collector I can't afford the high prices Mr. Hughes work will inevitably command on the site where there's more money than sense.

When I went to the Pittsburgh show I spotted an Ethan Van Sciver sketch there at a booth that I saw him drawing at Mid Ohio Con, marked up to $400.

Flippers continue to ruin it for the rest of us. That's the way the cookie crumbles.

They're not Sketches! I wish I had the link to Spazzy's Cover Run sketch he did for her. It is what I consider a sketch. These are the same type of detail that you see on the Dodson's con "sketches". To me a sketch is something that takes you less than 10 minutes. When he says he's worked on it all day, that's WHY he's only doing 1 per day it's not a mere sketch in my eyes any more.

If it were about the money then he'd be charging what Stephane Roux does.... know what a commission from HIM goes for???? $3000!!!! That's not a typo... THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS, and he does mostly covers too.

I think that a lot of Allison's comments are HER feelings on it. I've met Adam, he's a very quite man. I can't see him being this openly angry about it, but Allison, from my talking to her, seems like the protective type. She's seen the effect this has had on him and stood up.

I guess I don't see how, as an artist, you can continually say "Well screw him. If they make more money off him selling it to them then his loss." I can't believe that you've honestly put yourself in their shoes. Someone buys something from you, which you've put a fair price on and then makes $300 off YOUR work and it happens over and over again you're not going to get mad???

I'm sorry, there's no convincing me that he's a jerk. I think the guy that sold the piece is a slime ball and I DO hope he chokes. (not to death) Because of HIM I may never get my affordable Hughes piece.

That said, I'm done wasting my "breath".
