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!

Amazing! Though Calvin looks to be about 15 and the little girl, clearly, has had too much.... sugar. :)

love it so much I'm crying- no hyperbole- I seriously am right now- sad, but I like it- Bill Watterson would be proud.


also, what happened to G.R.O.S.S. (Get Rid Of Slimy girlS) ?

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?

This is a very nice tribute, probably the best interpretation of an adult Calvin I've seen. I like how Hobbes normally appears as a toy with a straight face, but here he's smiling. It's as if Watterson's mystery of whether he's really alive truly never ends. I think Calvin still knows...

I adore it. I really do. 
I loved Calvin and Hobbes and still do to this day. I got The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes and The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes, literally inches away here on my bookshelf. 
It's a wonderful sketch, fresh, unique, and heartwarming. 
Peace and carrots,

Haha, I love it! It's very fun! I'm glad you decided to go ahead and make this piece. Regardless of preference, I think it is good to be able to look at things from a different angle like this. Even if someone thinks it's "wrong," we still gain perspective on whatever the subject is and hopefully even learn about ourselves as we examine our responses. I like it. His daughter is super cute and mischievous! I'm curious about what his wife is like and the family dynamic in your version of Calvin's grown up life. =)
