The Tao of Calvin

This piece is for my friend Tone, who has a sketchbook full of Calvin and Hobbes drawings that people have done for him. I had all the books of Calvin and Hobbes growing up and it remains my #1 comic by far. I've been on the relaxing kick this week, so I wanted to show Calvin unwinding in the woods that are always seen in the comic. To me, it's a much more believable scene than him praying to a cross or choosing sides in the Chevy vs. Ford debate.

It started out as a drawing (2B pencil), then I scanned it and painted/refined it in Photoshop. Took about 3 hours, minus the time it took me to make a veggie burger sandwich.
