Wait a minute. Someone's livelihood may have been put at risk due to a commission you all started and you act glib and couldn't care less about it?!? I assumed contacting the artist's boss = Andrews McMeel (good luck with that) but if someone actually contacted Steve's boss over these knockoffs the ONLY people who should be blamed are the ones who started this commission. I hope one of you told Steve how Bill Watterson's been very vocal about NOT licensing Calvin and Hobbes before he agreed to take on this project; if not you're worse than flippers...

Very cool. :heart:

I'm currently in the middle of painting the guest room here. I might paint a C&H mural of some sorts on one of the walls, certainly contemplating it.

Yeah man. I thought it couldn't get any worse than that till they sat me down with my Primus cds and would go over the lyrics. I will never forget the outrage they had for the Pork Soda album. They called it "secular" music and of course burned it. A running trend in my family.

if y'all really felt that nostalgic about watterson's work as it appears you do you wouldn't be promoting someone else making money off of it. but whatever helps you sleep at night, it's clear what's taken place here.

It's a small edition private commission and not up for broad resale, so morally slightly different than mass producing a Calvin and Hobbes poster/sticker/calendar/whatever to profit off of.

Still doesn't really pass the smell test on a lot of levels, but do you really give a fudge?
Stand by it, especially the last bit there.

C and H mural in the guest room now? :roll: But to each their own, of course.


I don't care about any of this fudge. I've stomped all over some copyrighted images in my time. But it seems to me that the biggest fans of BILL WATTERSON (Calvin and Hobbes are not real) would have more respect for his wishes as an artist who created something you love so much. Homie created the characters you guys adore and has gone on record many times about how he feels about fudge like this. It simply doesn't add up that you have no respect for that wish.

Counter argument: my desire to have a Calvin & Hobbes poster on my wall matters more to me than Mr. Watterson's desire to not create a nice authentic one I could support him with. Is it selfish? Sure, but I think it's more a celebration than a slap in the face. Especially for the people in the commission who are basically carpeting their house with Calvin & Hobbes.

You're a god damn fan. It's not your job to protect some other person's license. If you have a problem with it, you inform the license holder directly and they decide whether they want to deal with it or not. I'd like to see you turning over tables at comic conventions for people who make C&H tribute art because what they do is more egregious than what has been done here.

^you can keep trying to argue your point by saying "it's ok because other people do it" but that's not actually a valid argument.

You guys didn't hear? Hobbes did too many shrooms and ate Calvin accidentally while hallucinating.
