It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas?!

Last year’s Snofte Smith Christmas Comic Book created for our wonderful readers in Norway!

Here we are in the Summer of 2017, but as a cartoonist, I’ve been thinking a lot about Christmas lately.  That’s how it is when you’re a cartoonist and have to work so far ahead on deadlines. The Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip is translated into many languages including Swedish, Danish and Norwegian.  As I have mentioned before in this blog, each year in the country of Norway, there is a special Snofte Smith Christmas Comic Book that comes out every December.  Through King Features, it has been my honor to work with Egmont, the publisher in Norway, for many years on the Snofte Smith Christmas Comic Book, or Julehefte, as it is known.  Starting in May, I began working on cover designs for this year’s Christmas comic book.  Once a sketch is approved, I create the final art for the cover and turn it into the publisher.

Bodacious Congratulations, Mike Peters!

My wife, Karen and I were so honored to have been able to attend an exhibition honoring the great cartoonist, Mike Peters, who I first met when I was a college student at James Madison University in 1984 and he’s been a friend, an inspiration and a mentor to me ever since.  Mike is a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Dayton Daily News and he creates the hugely popular Mother Goose and Grimm comic strip for King Features.  For almost fifty years, his cartoons have amused, informed and entertained readers.  The exhibition is titled “What A Hoot: A Mike Peters Retrospective” and it is at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State University through March 12, 2017.  If you are able to attend, I would certainly encourage you to do so!  Here are some photos from the wonderful weekend:
