Adam Hughes, artist extraordinaire, took time from his busy table at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo to speak with me. His work is rightfully described as “Good girl art,” for – as what Adam likes to call – its naturalistic look.  Leading up to this interview, I was drawn in (pardon the pun) to watching Adam do incredible head sketches in what seemed like a matter of seconds for the many, many fans visiting him. He gives us insight into the City of Atlanta and how its become a hub for artists, his advice on breaking into the industry and a rundown of his current and potential upcoming projects.

Follow Adam on twitter @AH_AdamHughes and also follow Allison Sohn – his talented, Doctor Who-loving, artist wife @MrsAdamHughes.
