It’s Beginnin’ To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Last year's Snofte Smith Christmas Comic Book for our readers in Norway!

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

WHAT?!! Beginning to look a lot like Christmas?!! It’s only the beginning of May, you say!! But, that’s how it is when you’re a cartoonist and have to work so far ahead on deadlines. As I have mentioned before in this blog, each year in the country of Norway, there is a special Snuffy Smith Christmas Comic Book that comes out every December.  For the last few weeks I have been working on cover designs for this year’s Christmas comic book.  To get in the mood to come up with Christmas ideas in May, I listen to Christmas music and watch classic Christmas movies.  I’m happy to say that this week I successfully completed the cover for next year’s book and turned it in to the publisher.
