Calvin and Hobbes: Moving On by Zatransis Calvin and Hobbes: Moving On by Zatransis
Hey peoples!

When I started this pic as a sketch I thought I was brilliant. I thought the idea was fresh and original. How retarded is that? Once I started looking up reference I found a giant pile of art about Calvin when he grows up. AND... a lot of them involved a daughter. I decided that I didn't care and did this one up anyway.

I hope everyone enjoys this piece. There is some heat regarding the concept of a grown up Calvin and that he should always remain a child. But to me, that's like wishing your puppy never becomes a dog or your child never becomes an adult... it's selfish. So, I consider this image about letting go of things you hold dear so it, and you, can move on.

Peace and carrots,

M!

I really like your piece, regardless of how many others there are out there of a similar theme I would say this is one of the better ones. Also on the note of Calvin growing up, I like the idea of him growing up as to me it makes all of his adventures, ideas, etc. seem so much more child like and special.

To that I say that the Peanuts gang never really grew up.. There is something wonderful to be said for having something stay the same and that I that your great, great grandkids will enjoy something one enjoyed as a kid but there will always be those who will grow up but I don't think Calvin should be..  He is our childhood  antics personified and that is important for without that kids would never have their own personality...

So while I have nothing against it.. We must also consider what would be lost and that lost may be higher than any think..

I could never imagine Calvin giving Hobbs up, but I love the idea of a younger sibling! Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1] It's such an awesome drawing! Great job.

Calvin grew the fuck up. He knows now that girls aren't slimy.




and he finally listened in school and graduated.

Perhaps it became "Get Rid Of Slimy boyS"? Since his daughter inherited of it?
