See Snuffy On Yore Summer Vacation!

 

My nephew, Christian, and niece, Sydney, pose with Snuffy Smith’s dog, Ol’ Bullet at the Comic Strip Dog Fountain.  This fountain is located in the Toon Lagoon section of Universal Studios Islands Of Adventure Theme Park.  It features statues of many famous comic strip dogs!

The state of Florida is one of the most popular summer vacation destinations! If you happen to be visiting Orlando, Florida on your vacation this year, stop by Universal Studios Islands Of Adventure Theme Park and say “howdy” to Snuffy Smith and family! They are featured, along with many of your other favorite comic strip characters, in the Toon Lagoon section of the theme park.  You can find them in The Comic Strip Cafe, the Comic Strip Dog Fountain and on a large display panel in the center of the Toon Lagoon area.  My brother, Mike and his wife, Amy recently took their children on a family vacation to Universal and sent me these cute photos!

Snuffy Smif…In Disney World?!

Recently, I had a few Snuffy Smith Cartooning Chalk Talk speaking engagements in The Villages, Florida and Palm Coast, Florida. I scheduled these talks over our daughters’ college spring breaks, so we packed up the family and headed to Florida  (hoping to escape the harsh Virginia winter we’ve had this year!). For me, no visit to Florida is complete without a visit to Disney World. Here are some photos from our recent trip:

Snuffy Visits Th’ Sunshine State!

As I sit watching another big snowstorm here in Virginia, I thought it was the perfect time to announce that Snuffy and I are heading for warmer temperatures very soon!  I will be doing a series of Snuffy Smith Chalk Talks, Children’s Cartooning Workshops and bodacious book signings in the state of Florida to promote the release of my new book, The Bodacious Best of Snuffy Smith. I will be in both The Villages, Florida and Palm Coast, Florida later this month.  In my chalk talks, I talk about my career as the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith cartoonist, shows samples of my work and draw some of the comic strip’s most popular characters for the audience.  In the children’s cartooning workshops, I show the children how to draw lots of fun cartoon characters including some from the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip.
