Description:
Bill Watterson Petey Otterloop Painting Original Art (2011). This small painting by Bill Watterson is the first piece of work created by the artist to be made public since he ended his Calvin and Hobbes strip in 1995. Painted in oil on heavy illustration board, the work sparkles with character. Richard Thompson commented: "After studying it pretty closely for the last consecutive 12 hours or so I can say that he's done Petey as much justice as possible. Adding another dimension to a 2D character is a tricky business and Petey's awkward enough in dealing with the two he's normally confined to." In Excellent condition. Signed by the artist with a monogram at the lower left and with his signature on the reverse.
