This past weekend, I volunteered to raise money for “End Polio Now” by drawing cartoons and caricatures in Hot Springs, Virginia. I had to be “quick on the draw” because I drew lots and lots of caricatures and cartoons! But it was very rewarding knowing we were raising money for a great cause! Here are a few photos from the event which took place during the Rotary District 7570 Conference.
Discussing one of my favorite Snuffy Smith comic strips with the audience as it is projected on the screen.
This past week I had the opportunity to do a Snuffy Smith Chalk Talk presentation to the Rotary Club Of Harrisonburg (VA). They are a wonderful group of folks. As I presented samples of my work, I really enjoyed hearing the laughter of the crowd. As a cartoonist, I am often alone in my studio creating comic strips and I wonder if people find them as funny as I do. So it is a lot of fun to get out and speak to groups and actually hear the laughter and know that others really find the strip funny, too! This presentation was a lot of fun…in fact you could say it was a hoot an’ a holler!
On Monday, March 13th at 11:45 am, I will be speaking to the Harrisonburg (VA) Rotary Club at the Elks Lodge in Harrisonburg at 482 South Main Street. I will be doing a Chalk Talk where, after a brief description of how I got into cartooning as a career, I will show samples of my cartoons, featuring my work on the Snuffy Smith comic strip. Then I will draw the characters on a large easel for the audience.
