The Index-Journal Celebrates 100 Bodacious Years!

In this cross section of the Index-Journal’s editorial page, you can see the special cartoon I created.

This week the Index-Journal newspaper in Greenwood, South Carolina celebrated its 100th Birthday!  I was honored to be contacted by Index-Journal Executive Editor Richard Whiting who invited me to contribute a special Barney Google and Snuffy Smith cartoon to run in the newspaper as part of their centennial celebration.  The Index-Journal runs our comic strip in their newspaper seven days a week and Whiting was aware of our comic strip’s upcoming 100th birthday on June 17, 2019.  Since we both turn 100 in the same year, he thought it would be fun to have a special cartoon mentioning that fact and I agreed.  Above you can see the cartoon I created.  It was so much fun to draw! Bodacious congratulations to the Index-Journal on reaching this amazing milestone and many, many thanks to Richard Whiting and the Index-Journal for allowing Barney Google, Snuffy Smith and I to be a small part of it!

South Carolina Here We Come!
