Fantastic. I wonder if Hobbes sits in a chair with reading glasses on in the dorm room, while Calvin studies? :)

I've always been a huge fan of Calvin and Hobbes. This rendition really struck me. I think it's great, but I feel conflicted about it. Part of me wants to see them doing something stupid or dangerous and having a great time doing it. But the other part of me knows that they would end up being this introspective and calm. They seem well-balanced and well-grounded which would naturally and so perfectly stem from the childhood they shared.

As a long time Calvin & Hobbes fan, I'm floored. Amazing.

I gasped when this loaded and it really struck a cord with me as well. This is absolutely stunning. Thank you for sharing.

Sad. I guess this tell which generation I grew up in.

My first thought when I saw this beautiful picture, was of Christopher Robin and Tigger.

I didn't come into the whole Calvin & Hobbes genre (and I still love it) until I was "grown up." Sigh.

When does the tiger turn on the man? In what forest does the man release the tiger? Not Joy Adams, but Dante—not Elsa, but Virgil …

what kind of snowmen does he make, now?

It's really more of a William Blake moment. Tiger! Tiger! burning bright / In the forests of the night, / What immortal hand or eye / Dare frame thy fearful symmetry? I think they have a sort of 'spring-loaded' look to them, as if the moment you take your eyes off them they are READY! for some outrageous activity. I bet they didn't go to college. They went hiking in western China, or Siberia, looking for the other tigers.
