Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for February 22, 1990
Hobbes: How's your snow art progressing? Calvin: I've moved into abstraction! Hobbes: Ah. Calvin: This piece is about the inadequacy of traditional imagery and symbols to convey meaning in today's world. By abondoning representationalism, I'm free to express myself with pure form. Specific interpretation gives way to a more visceral response. Hobbes: I notice your oeuvre is monochromatic. Calvin: Well, c'mon it's just snow.
