This past weekend I was a guest at HeroesCon 2017 in Charlotte, NC once again. We had a bodacious time meeting Snuffy Smith fans and seeing old friends and making new ones! If you have never been to HeroesCon before try to come next year! You will thoroughly enjoy yourself. Here are some photos from the weekend:
One of the highlights of the weekend for me was being asked to work on a jam drawing with comic legends Joe Staton (Dick Tracy, E- Man, Scooby Doo) and Marcus Hamilton (Dennis The Menace daily panels). The crossover piece is Dick Tracy reading a Snuffy Smith comic book while Snuffy is reading a Dennis the Menace comic, while Dennis is reading a Dick Tracy comic. The request for the drawing was made by comic fan, Steven Morris.
With my good friend former Disney Animator, creator of Mushu from Mulan and co-host of The Bancroft Brothers Animation Podcast, Tom Bancroft. He is so amazingly talented!
I was so happy that both of our daughters could join me at my table this year, especially since it was Father’s Day Weekend. They were a tremendous help! Meredith is on the left and Sarah is on the right.
It was a true honor to get to meet Silver Age Comic Book legend, Joe Giella, whose work on Batman, Green Lantern and the King Features Mary Worth comic strip I have always admired. Joe proves that the bigger they are, the nicer they are!
