Bill Watterson’s first public piece of art in 16 years
Calvin and Hobbes ended in 1995, and since then, artist Bill Watterson has maintained the lowest of profiles, but he recently put out his first piece of art in 16 years for a fundraiser for Parkinson’s research.

This painting — by “Calvin and Hobbes” creator Bill Watterson — is the first new art from him that his syndicate has seen in the 16 subsequent years, say executives with Universal Uclick and its parent company, Andrews McMeel.
The artwork is of the character Petey Otterloop from Richard Thompson’s comic strip “Cul de Sac.”  “The strip depicts all sorts of moments that ring true with regard to childhood,” the long-reclusive Watterson tells Comic Riffs, “but I’d say Petey is a truly original insight.”  The artwork — 6”-by-8” oil on board — is Watterson’s contribution to the Team Cul de Sac fundraising project for Parkinson’s research.
