Calvin and Hobbes creator’s words with aspiring comic’s art combine to talk about what is important in life.

I’ve always had the utmost respect for Bill Waterson (the man behind Calvin and Hobbes).  Once he had said all he wanted to say with Calvin and Hobbes, he walked away.  Rather than staying on to make money having to manufacture motivation and letting the cartoon get stale, he walked away.

I admire him for that.

A short comic has recently been released using Watterson’s words about life philosophy that very closely resembles my own.  As someone who owned every Calvin and Hobbes anthology, it’s good to once again be the recipient of Waterson’s wit and wisdom as only he can convey it.  Gavin Aung Than of ZenPencils.com did the artwork.  Check out the comic, it’ll make you smile.
