WVPT Television Interview With Snuffy Smith Cartoonist John Rose

I was featured on the WVPT Public Television show, Hey Virginia on Thursday, January 25th.  They interviewed me on my career as the cartoonist for the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip which is syndicated by King Features . You can see the entire interview above.  It lasts about five minutes if you’d like to check it out!

Children’s Cartooning Workshops!

This student did a great job drawing Snuffy!

This past week I conducted a Snuffy Smith Children’s Cartooning Workshop at Stuarts Draft Elementary School in Stuarts Draft, Virginia. I had students from the elementary school’s Gifted And Talented program in my class.  They all did a terrific job!  I hope you enjoy all these photos of young artists at work!

A Cartoony Christmas For Me!

You can see that, as a professional cartoonist, a lot of the Christmas gifts I ask for and receive are comic and cartoon related. And I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love it! Above are some of the wonderful comic strip collections and books I was lucky enough to get this year. With three out of the four being King Features strips, (Zits, Hagar and Prince Valiant) I really had a King Features Comics Christmas!  In addition to these items, I also received several animated films on DVD: Despicable Me 3, It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Cars 3. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!
