Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for June 26, 1992
Hobbes: There! I made a tiger. Calvin: That's no good! Who's going to buy something like that?! It's subtle! It's boring! It's incomprehensible! How will this ever appeal to the lowest common denominator?! It's completely unadaptable to merchandising tie-ins! Hobbes: Who cares? I just wanted to make it. Calvin: What?! Is this some snobby, elitist, aesthetic thing?!?
