Bodacious thanks to Staunton, Virginia’s Happy Birthday America Celebration for inviting me as the cartoonist for the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip and my wife, Karen, to be guests in their great Fourth Of July parade!  Special thanks to our wonderful driver, Luther Hollingsworth! Luther’s classic Corvette was amazing!  It was a true joy to meet so many Snuffy Smith fans along the parade route that day.  Also, many thanks to Andrew Deitz and Langdon Reid for inviting us to be a part of the special celebration. #StauntonHBA2018

Snuffy Smith And Garfield!

My contribution to Garfield’s NEW book!

It was such a huge honor to be asked by one of my cartooning heroes, Jim Davis, to draw a special Snuffy Smith/Garfield cartoon for his new book! Here is my contribution to the brand new book “Age Happens: Garfield Hits The Big 4-0” which features birthday wishes from many cartoonists in addition to many of Jim’s great Garfield comic strips and other fun Garfield info! It released on June 19, 2018. Look for this wonderful book for sale online and in better bookstores everywhere!
