Calvin is a little boy who has an imaginary tiger friend names Hobbes who SPOILER - turns out to be a stuffed tiger. :lol:

Just 2 images from the net that I printed on some nice watercolor paper. Have been a huge Watterson fan since I was a kid and can't afford the autographed litho...

Humble brag. I did the silhouettes myself.

They look seriously good. Nice work. Much better than the C&H mash ups out there.

Nicely done, very cool when people just frame up things they like with no eye toward value or rarity, just something that's personal or important to them and good looking.
Looks great :clap:

you frame & hang stuff on your walls that you don't like? that's my #1 requirement.

value/rarity is nice to make my peen feel bigger, but if the art doesn't get my peen hard, then what's the use?

yo Gonzo, best variant I've seen. Congrats.
Jools, dat Sierra Hull. Love underwater plants and in turn that poster. Hope to set up a landscape Nanocube one day, maybe a tiny school of tetras. Seen em'?
Statik, some of the best Primus posters IMO although I'm partial to posters that exhibit things going on above and below water. Hope to nail down those soon. :pint:
