Put this new piece of Snuffy Smith art I created on t-shirts, mouse pads, water bottles, coffee mugs and more!

I am happy to let you know that we just added a brand new piece of art I created to this website’s Gen’ral Store! It was inspired by a popular Barney Google and Snuffy Smith Sunday Comic Strip I drew in October of 2014 featuring Snuffy Smith and Ol’ Bullet. The art is entitled Hillbillly’s Best Friend and it is a wonderful gift for all the pet lovers you know! And all the hillbillies you know, too! You can get it on coffee mugs, mouse pads, t-shirts, water bottles, aprons and more! Just click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page and you’ll see the Hillbillly’s Best Friend art! Have fun shoppin’!

I am happy to announce that “Hopalong Jughaid,” the first Snuffy Smith comic book story since the 1970’s is hot off the press and available for shipping today!  As I have mentioned in this blog before, this is the first Snuffy Smith comic book story in America in 45 years. I was so honored when asked by Michael Ambrose, Charlton Spotlight Editor, to write a new 10-page Snuffy Smith comic book story for Charlton Spotlight #9!  It was a really fun story to write and draw and, as you can sense from the title, it centers around Snuffy’s nephew, Jughaid.  But Snuffy is in the story, too, as are many of your favorite characters from Hootin’ Holler, including Miz Prunelly, Ol’ Snort, Spark Plug and many, many more!  I’d also like to thank King Features Editor, Brendan Burford, for his invaluable help with this project and Donnie Pitchford, Charlton Spotlight Colorist, who did an excellent job vibrantly coloring my story and helping bring my black and white drawings to life.

Those Bodacious Barlows!

Everyone knows that the most famous residents of Hootin’ Holler are the Smith family.  But, there are several other families that also just show up from time to time.  For example, sometimes we’ll see walk-on characters from the Hawkins or Ledbetter families.  But as I was drawing a strip this week that featured Snuffy’s enemy, Hank Barlow, I began to think that, over the years, there have been many, many different characters from the Barlow family.  In fact, they have to be the strip’s most popular walk-on characters.  Today I thought we’d look back at some of the bodacious Barlows that have shown up over the years…
