If you can’t interview Bill Watterson, interview his parents

The Indiana Daily Student has written an article about the reclusive former cartoonist Bill Watterson. Not being able to track down Watterson, they did the next best thing – they interviewed his parents..

After “Calvin and Hobbes” ended, Jim Watterson and his son would paint landscapes together, setting up easels along the Chagrin River or other vistas. He laughed that sometimes they’d spend more time choosing a site than painting. But they haven’t painted together for years.
