HeroesCon 2015!!

Along with King Features cartoonists, Marcus Hamilton, Bill Holbrook and the mighty Stan Lee, I was one of the guests at HeroesCon 2015 in Charlotte, NC this past weekend. Like usual, this year’s Heroes was a bodacious time for all! Here are a few photos from the weekend:

Marcus Hamilton (Dennis the Menace dailies) and I did some jam art for the benefit auction.  I drew Snuffy Smith reading a Dennis The Menace comic book and Marcus drew Dennis reading a Snuffy Smith comic book.  Marcus drew his with a blank comic book cover and I drew Snuffy on his wonderful piece of art.  I drew mine with a blank comic book cover as well and Marcus drew Dennis on my drawing.

Ice Bucket Challenge!!

Snuffy Ice Bucket

Comic strip characters everywhere are participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!  Snuffy Smith was challenged by Beetle Bailey (cartoonists Greg and Mort Walker) and Outnumbered (Disney animator/cartoonist Tom Bancroft).  After taking the plunge, Snuffy Smith challenged Dennis the Menace (cartoonists Marcus Hamilton and Ron Ferdinand).
