The face of Rosemary “Snooky” Fisher, accomplished artist, potter, and wife of cartoonist George Fisher, is recognized by few people in Arkansas. However, her name is a different story. In 1976, George Fisher became the chief editorial cartoonist for the Arkansas Gazette. At about the same time, he began to insert his wife’s nickname into his work. It took approximately a year before anyone noticed this inside joke. From that moment of discovery, it became the daily quest for Fisher fans to find the word “Snooky” in his cartoons.
