Hughes was born 1967 in Riverside, New Jersey and began drawing "as soon as the opposable thumb started working." He broke into the comics world in 1985 and hit the mainstream in 1989 on D.C. Comic's Justice League. In the beginning, he drew both covers and interior pages, but later switched to just cover art. While working on the Dark Horse series "Ghost", Hughes started using an "Art Nouveau" style to give his art a Film Noir feel. He also started using Photoshop to digitally color his work.
In 1998, Hughes began a successful 5 year run of Wonder Woman covers that brought him critical acclaim. He followed that up with another successful run on Catwoman. Besides comic covers, his artwork can be seen in many places outside the comic book industry. He recently created the cover for a new Wonder Woman Encyclopedia and has an "Art of..." coffee table book in the works.
