Bill Watterson and Stephan Pastis Pearls Before Swine Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-4-2014 (Universal Uclick, 2014). Bill Watterson is back! Let us say that again -- Bill Watterson is back! The long-retired cartoonist for the beloved and much-missed Calvin and Hobbes strip was a recent "guest artist" for three days on Stephan Pastis' funny feature, Pearls Before Swine. Here's the first of their three collaborations, with Watterson supplying the art to a sequence drawn in the strip by a second-grader, after she interrupts Pastis at work. Watterson does the middle panel here, and it's easy to spot his familiar brushwork, not to mention the funny take on a "croc scene." Mr. Watterson has requested Heritage sell the artwork to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research on behalf of Team Cul de Sac. What a wonderful way to help a great cause, and who doesn't want a Bill Watterson original to hang in their home?
The art is in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 16.75" x 5.25", and is in Excellent condition, with... aw, to heck with it, here's all you really need to know: Bill Watterson's back!
Please note that the art is signed by Watterson; this signature was deleted from the newspaper version.
