Recently I was a guest at the second annual LexingCon in Lexington, NC! I was very honored when invited to attend! What a fun day we all had! If you missed it this year, please try to attend next year. In addition to meeting many wonderful Snuffy fans, I also gave a presentation to the crowd about the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip and participated in a panel discussion. There were also costume contests, cosplay contests and other events all day long. Below are some photos from the event... Drawing Snuffy for the audience during my Snuffy Smith Chalk Talk. The boys and their banners. In the Artists' Alley with my fellow syndicated comic strip cartoonists: the amazing Tim Rickard, Brewster Rockit and the incredible Marcus Hamilton, Dennis The Menace daily panels. Happy birthday, Marcia! Some of the guest cartoonists honored LexingCon coordinator, Marcia Myers, with special original birthday drawings.

Meredith and I really enjoyed dining at Lexington Barbecue after LexingCon! Bodacious thanks to Marcus Hamilton for recommending it! Thanks to Meredith, Marcus, Marcia and the LexingCon crew for taking these photos!
