First New Art From ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ Creator in 16 Years

This painting by “Calvin and Hobbes” creator Bill Watterson is the first new art from him in the 16 subsequent years since he stopped publishing his famous strip. The artwork, a 6”-by-8” oil on board, depicts the character Petey Otterloop from Richard Thompson’s comic strip “Cul de Sac.” It’s Watterson’s contribution to the Team Cul de Sac fundraising project for Parkinson’s research, which hopes to raise $250,000.
