After working for 3 and one-half years as Fred Lasswell's inking assistant, I was hired by King Features to be the cartoonist on the Barney Google And Snuffy Smith comic strip 20 years ago this month in April of 2001. Time flies when you're having fun! Creating this comic strip always has been, and continues to be, the greatest joy of my professional career!
I will always be thankful to King Features, Fred Lasswell and Billy DeBeck for the wonderful opportunity I have to continue to carry on the rich legacy of this comic strip. I hope you enjoy this special art I created to celebrate 20 years! Thank you to all our readers and here's to many, many more bodacious years together!
