CAPS, the Comic Art Professional Society, held our annual banquet to honor the great Stan Lee last night. Each year, our guest of honor receives the coveted Sergio award. It's a statue based on Sergio Aragonés, legendary artist of MAD Magazine and creator of Groo and one of the founders of CAPS. Bill Morrison and Mark Evanier presided over the ceremony with speeches from Scott Shaw! and Marv Wolfman.
Stan was then presented with a beautiful leather bound book of original drawings from all the artists of CAPS in his honor. Above is my contribution to that book.The event was organized by Stephen Silver who did an amazing job, as well as the cover to the program! Thanks, Stephen! Love you, Stan!
