Inspirational Art: Calvin and Hobbes

Scan0013 (800x565)Calvin and Hobbes is one of my favorites! The comedic timing, color balance and draftsmanship are all amazing! The creator of the series, Bill Watterson, is an extremely recluse guy, yet he somehow managed to make his characters world-famous. Doing “only art” and no marketing/PR doesn’t usually work, but in his case it did.

These books were literally a school in humor for me: When I was a kid, I didn’t really “get” jokes, so I would read my parent’s Calvin and Hobbes books, trying to understand the humor behind each story. Obviously this didn’t work over night, but over time it did. So here’s a strip about Modern Art. As always with Calvin and Hobbes, it hits the nail on the head!
