One of my favorite memories from last year's Wilderness Wildlife Week is teaching this young Snuffy Smith fan how to draw Jughaid Smith! Barney Google and Snuffy Smith Cartoonist, John Rose, will be a guest once again at this year’s Wilderness Wildlife Week in Pigeon Forge, Rose will be in East Tennessee promoting his Snuffy Smith book and presenting: • A Bodacious Snuffy Smith Chalk Talk — A general audience program where he will speak about his career as a cartoonist, discuss the history of the comic strip, show samples and draw the characters a large easel for the audience. Friday, May 12, 2017 from 1-2 p.m. • Bodacious Cartooning For Kids Workshop (space is limited, requires preregistration), Saturday, May 13 from 1-2 p.m. Rose will also be signing copies of his book, Balls Of Fire! More Snuffy Smith Comics in the exhibit hall both days. If you would like to purchase a copy of this book, but cannot make it to Rose’s presentations in Tennessee, you can order it here. Both events will be at the beautiful LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge and are free and open to the public. Please come by and say howdy!
