Description

Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes 1989-90 Calendar Cover Watercolor Illustration Original Art (c. 1988). Calvin and Hobbes fans, feast your eyes on this --it's the real deal! As all comic art fans know, few pieces of original art are as scarce and sought after as a Calvin and Hobbes original by the characters' creator Bill Watterson. Since Watterson is one of the few cartoonists to shun the merchandising bonanza of a popular character and is a very private person, his artwork is in incredibly high-demand. Only a very small handful of originals have ever come onto the market, so don't miss out on your chance to win this gem, only the second such piece we've offered -- an incredible, published beauty featuring the two main characters from the most popular and fondly remembered newspaper strip since Peanuts. The image area of this ink and watercolor masterwork is 13" x 10", and the art is in Excellent condition. This piece has a special provenance as it was in the collection of one of the American comic strips' most important historians and feature writers, Rick Marschall. Inscribed and signed at the lower right, "For Rick Marschall, 'komic konnoisseur' Bill Watterson."
