An award winning inspiration to many, especially for being brave enough to allow his art to reflect his faith, died Saturday:
Helping Creative People Discover Their Purpose:
Art Lessons From God!
Wow, that's definitely something admirable about him. I don't recall his works, but I can sure appreciate that he expressed his faith, too.
R.I.P. Johnny Hart. 76 is just too young for a brillant cartoonist.
To me, it doesn't matter what message a cartoonist is conveying in his work...it's whether he does it well and professionally as well as makes me laugh. Hart did this, and for that, I'll always admire him and his work.
He was also a prime mover in the fight to insure cartoonists retained their rights and an equitable income from their work, and for this alone, he deserves any accolades he receives. Good life, Great One...

Aww, too bad. I liked his stuff as a little little kid. I just liked the art back then, but was too young to understood the text. It reminded me of how my dad drew cartoons. I think he wrote little poems too, sometimes, if I remember correctly.
it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..
Wow, another comic book guy dies at the storyboard. Those guys are dedicated
Sad to hear of his death
That's really sad to hear. As many have voiced, his dedication and hard work should definately make us all reflect and try harder, especially with a subject so far out of mainstream, sequential entertainment. He was a true inspiration.
I really loved his cartoons. Used to look forward to them every sunday. RIP dude. Thanks for the laughs.
