Calvin and Hobbes Exhibition Catalogue coming in October

If you can’t get to the Bill Watterson exhibit at Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum at Ohio State University, consider buying Exploring Calvin and Hobbes: An Exhibition Catalogue. The catalogue will be released at the end of October.

Exploring Calvin and Hobbes is the catalogue for an exhibit by the same name at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum at Ohio State University, which opened in March 2014. The exhibit is Bill Watterson’s personal exploration of how the wonder of Calvin and Hobbes came to be. It includes original art of Calvin and Hobbes, along with Watterson’s original commentary on each. The show also includes art from cartoons and cartoonists that Watterson has identified as influential in the development of his art, including Peanuts, Pogo, Krazy Kat, Doonesbury, Pat Oliphant, Jim Borgman, Flash Gordon, Bloom County, and Steadman.

The Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum and Library is the repository of the Bill Watterson Deposit Collection (including the entirety of Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes artwork).

I’m sure this exhibition catalogue will be great, but standing in front of the original art at this show is WOWSERS! Just amazingly beautiful, both the art of Bill Watterson and Richard Thompson.

I went to the exhibit over the weekend- what a treat! It was an absolute blast to stand inches from both Watterson’s and Thompson’s work.

Still giddy from it :)
