I recently revised the Calvin and Hobbes homage poster and converted it into a mock-up film poster (as my original idea and the layout lent itself to the format). Obviously this is a tongue in cheek send up, as Mr. Watterson has never allowed his creation to be cheapened by commercial business interests, whether they be merchandise options or cross-media interpretations.
I have been a smitten Calvin and Hobbes fan for many years now and there are a lot of Calvin & Hobbes tributes online. Alot of people envision Calvin & Hobbes in a realistic ‘live action’ kind of way. If you imagine Calvin and his pet tiger in real life then picture a boy walking around with a fully grown bengal tiger. An excellent example from James Hance recently inspired me to do my own homage in a realistic style. First up I want to show the original Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes that the world has come to know and love.
The excellent James Hance C&H tribute.
The following are a few drafts of a Calvin & Hobbes homage.
