CALVIN & HOBBES by Evan Shaner

I was really busy the week this theme came up but I really wanted to make sure I did one. Coincidentally, I had a Calvin & Hobbes commission that needed to be done, so here's me killing two birds with one stone.

These characters mean an awful lot to me. Like Nathan (and I'm sure a lot of people at the time) I spent my childhood filling notebooks with drawings of Calvin and Hobbes, and they're a huge part of the reason I'm drawing at all today. My Grandpa would give me the collections to read and when the strip ended in 1995 I was heartbroken. So thanks, Mr. Watterson, for teaching me how to draw trees, dinosaurs, explosions, monsters, space, snowmen, and kids and tigers.
