Bodacious Christmas Wishes From Norway!


The 2018 cover for our Snuffy Smith Christmas Comic Book for our readers in Norway. This year’s cover is full of action and was a lot of fun to draw!

The Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip is translated into many different languages including Swedish, Danish and Norwegian. I have written in this blog before that every year we create a special Snuffy Smith Christmas Comic Book for our readers in Norway. I may call it a Snuffy Smith Christmas Comic Book, but in Norway it is called a Snøfte Smith Julehefte. The fine folks at King Features team up with the fine folks at Egmont Kids Media to create this publication. I am very thankful to get to work on this every year. I hope you enjoy seeing the cover–it was a fun one to create! I can’t wait to start working on next year’s book!

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.
