Southeast Chapter Of The NCS Fall Meeting In Knoxville!

This past weekend my wife, Karen, and I attended the annual Fall Meeting of the Southeast Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society of which I am honored to be a member.  This year’s meeting was in beautiful Knoxville, Tennessee.  Here are some photos from the weekend:

Bodacious Thanks To The Tennessee Press Association!

Readers of this blog may remember in July when I mentioned I received a First Place Award from the Tennessee Press Association.  I received this for a series of newspaper public service ads about wildfire prevention that I created featuring Snuffy Smith and family.  The series was titled Snuff Out Wildfires Before They Start.  If you missed that blog post you can read about it here.  I finally got a photo of the award so I thought I would share it with you.  Thank you again to the Knoxville News-Sentinel, the Tennessee Press Association and King Features Syndicate for partnering with me on this very worthwhile project.  I truly appreciate the Tennessee Press Association recognizing me with this honor.
