My Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip original art in the National Cartoonists Society Thanks & Giving Auction.
Did you know that 34 King Features cartoonists joined more than 125 other cartoonists in the larger cartooning community to support the National Cartoonists Society and National Cartoonists Society Foundation initiative to raise funds for disaster relief? That’s right! The National Cartoonists Society has partnered with Heritage Auctions for the NCS Thanks & Giving Auction. All proceeds from the auction will be sent to Direct Relief, a charity that specializes in providing humanitarian aid to victims of natural disasters. The comic strip offered above is by me, John Rose, and it ran on Thanksgiving Day, 2017. Click here to go straight to my piece of artwork in the benefit auction.

Recognizing the ongoing need to support victims of the recent natural disasters, including major hurricanes and wildfires, the NCS and NCS Foundation have partnered with Heritage Auctions and have invited the entire cartooning community – syndicated and non-syndicated artists alike – to donate their original comics from Thanksgiving Day to the online auction. I was very honored to participate in this worthwhile cause.
This is your chance to get some comic art AND support a good cause all at the same time! Auction ends November 30th – so check it out soon…
