Jughaid Smith Helps Hope For Henry Foundation

Snuffy Smith’s nephew, Jughaid, joins other cartoon characters in a month-long social media awareness program for the Hope For Henry Foundation.  Hope For Henry offers innovative programs to help seriously ill children and their families while they undergo treatment during often very long hospital stays. I was honored to asked to participate in this very worthwhile project while at a recent meeting of the Southeast Chapter Of The National Cartoonists Society. I am very thankful to King Features for partnering with me on this task.  You can read more about the Hope For Henry Foundation here.

Bodacious Pumpkins!

Everyone has heard of the Great Pumpkin, but have you heard of a Bodacious Pumpkin? For the first time in my many wonderful years of being the cartoonist for the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip, I had two fans send me photos of Snuffy Smith pumpkins they created for this Halloween season.  I hope you enjoy them!  I think they are both amazing!
