Recurring elements[ edit ] Art and academia[ edit ] Watterson used the strip to poke fun at the art world, principally through Calvin's unconventional creations of snowmen but also through other expressions of childhood art. When Miss Wormwood complains that he is wasting class time drawing impossible things a Stegosaurus in a rocket ship, for example , Calvin proclaims himself "on the cutting edge of the avant-garde. His next sculpture "speaks to the horror of our own mortality, inviting the viewer to contemplate the evanescence of life. Watterson also lampooned the academic world. In one example, Calvin carefully crafts an " artist's statement ", claiming that such essays convey more messages than artworks themselves ever do Hobbes blandly notes, "You misspelled Weltanschauung ". Displaying his creation to Hobbes, he remarks, "Academia, here I come!

Comic Bill Watterson is the artist and creator of in my humble opinion the greatest comic strip of all time, Calvin and Hobbes. I was a bit too young to appreciate it while it was originally published from , but I started devouring the book collections soon after. I think my brother had a few of the treasury collections and I must have read those dozens of times. To me, Calvin and Hobbes is cartooning perfection — that rare strip that has both exquisite writing AND gorgeous artwork.

And most importantly, a strip that was consistently laugh-out-loud funny. Besides the fact that Calvin and Hobbes is the comic I cherish above all others, Bill Watterson is my biggest creative influence and someone I admire greatly as an artist.
