In 1990, Bill Watterson created a Calvin and Hobbes storyline in which Calvin is bullied into playing baseball during recess. Watterson drew a relatable, cautionary tale about the dangers of cramming boys into neat little boxes. Everyone in this story wants Calvin to do something he hates, but even when he commits to…
Just another adventure for Calvin and Hobbes. This eight-inch-tall figure was sculpted and hand-painted by Emily Coleman of emilySculpts.com. The piece took Coleman 25 hours to complete, who noted that "sculpting comic strip characters is very very hard." Head over to her DeviantArt gallery for more sculpty goodness.
Holy crap! Calvin & Hobbes' creator Bill Watterson has been secretly drawing a comic strip! Nobody knew it except Stephan Pastis, the author of Pearls Before Swine. You're looking at his artwork right above these lines—the first two panels are drawn by the legendary cartoonist, the third by Pastis.
Calvin and Hobbes meet Spider-Man by David Branstetter for a Spider-Man-themed art jam that also included this Peanuts plus Spider-Man illustration:
DeviantART illustrator Tohad just can't stop. He has to go through the 80s and the 90s (and our childhood), brutally altering every single character, whether it's from a cartoon, a video game or a comic book.
It's snowing in Atlanta, and I'd like nothing more than to go outside and create armies of snowmen doing horrible, horrible things. Alas, LEGO artist Tyler Sky's Calvin and Hobbes tribute shall have to suffice.
This short clip of the iconic Calvin and Hobbes' dance in the woods by Canadian animator and compositor Adam Brown makes me want an animated cartoon so badly. One that is silent because, really, no actor would be able to get their voices right.
Not a day goes by that I don't somehow, consciously or subconsciously, live out a lesson I learned from Calvin & Hobbes. I sense I'm not alone in this.
I suspect that the video game industry's obsession with DARKER, MORE "MATURE" STORY might have influenced the way I look at stuff like this gritty re-imagining of Calvin and Hobbes by GrittyReboots.
I liked Limbo a lot. I love Bill Watteron's timeless comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. And so I would do things, ungodly things, for this T-shirt from Nowhere Bad, which combines the two things in a manner so fantastic that I can't believe no one's done it before.
