[18"x14" signed prints available - $30, get in touch :)]


24"x20" Acrylic on wood board, antiquey wooden frame. This exhausted me, I'm not sure if I'll ever want to part with it. If there's enough demand I'll run a short run of prints :) x

Calvin and Hobbes is a syndicated daily comic strip written and illustrated by American cartoonist Bill Watterson, and first syndicated from November 18, 1985 to December 31, 1995. It follows the humorous antics of Calvin, an imaginative and adventurous six-year-old boy, and Hobbes, his energetic and sardonic stuffed tiger. The pair are named after John Calvin, a 16th-century French Reformation theologian, and Thomas Hobbes, a 17th-century English political philosopher. At its height, Calvin and Hobbes was featured in over 2,400 newspapers worldwide; as of January 2010, reruns of the strip still appear in more than 50 countries (though not in North America). Nearly 45 million copies of the 18 Calvin and Hobbes books have been sold.

Set in the contemporary Midwestern United States in an unspecified suburban community, the broad themes of the strip deal with Calvin's flights of fantasy and his friendship with Hobbes, his misadventures, his unique views on a diverse range of political and cultural issues and his relationships with the people in his life, especially his parents. The dual nature of Hobbes is also a recurring motif: Calvin sees Hobbes as a live anthropomorphic tiger, while other characters see him as a stuffed toy.

This is wonderful beyond words! I've been snowed in for the past week, and I have been re-reading (for the millionth time I'm sure) every single Calvin and Hobbes book. Such good memories; they never get old :)
