Snuffy an’ Loweezy Christmas Ornaments!

Loweezy and Snuffy Old Time Milk Glass Christmas Light Ornaments.

Two exciting recent Ebay finds for me are these Old Time “Milk Glass” Christmas Light Ornaments of Snuffy Smith and Loweezy Smith! Hand made by Barclay, these bulb covers act two ways: They come with a standard style crown cap and loop, so you can hang them like regular Christmas tree ornaments. Or, if you prefer to make them glow with all the realism of an antique bulb, simply slip them onto any “midget” type light string, and they’ll softly glow.  They look great on a tree, but I use them as permanent fixtures in my studio year round!

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.
