We have made it our mission to write about anything Calvin & Hobbes-related that finds its way onto the Internet, as long as Calvin’s not wearing a Ford shirt and pissing on a Jeep. Especially when it brings out the ol’ waterworks, as comedian/illustrator Craig Mahoney’s painting of a grown-up Calvin and Hobbes has.
Amusingly, the sentimental picture, which is part of Mahoney’s art show, Awesomeness: The Art of a Fanboy, isn’t really what he’s known for. As he wrote on Twitter, “So, uh… Yeah. Welcome to all my new followers. Come for the nostalgic and geeky art. Stay for the self-deprecating dick jokes,” followed by, “Is there an app that can show how many of my exes have seen this Huffington Post article and felt a slight pang of regret?” What a Calvinballer.
