So many Pokeballs this week! I also finished and shipped off a few Asexu-whales! With Wizard World only a few weeks away I’m starting to feel the con crunch and hope to put a lot more pieces together by the end of the month!
July 5, 2017 … Bill Watterson is 59 … born July 5, 1958
Wikipedia: William Boyd “Bill” Watterson II is an American cartoonist and the author of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, which was syndicated from 1985 to 1995.
Watterson stopped drawing Calvin and Hobbes
at the end of 1995 with a short statement to newspaper editors and his
readers that he felt he had achieved all he could in the medium. He is known for his negative views on licensing and comic
syndication, his efforts to expand and elevate the newspaper comic as an
art-form, and his move back into private life after he stopped drawing the strip.
Watterson was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, whose suburban Midwestern United States setting was part of the inspiration for Calvin and Hobbes.
