Hobbes leave him alone.
Nice snowman sells better!
This, of course, was one of Bill Watterson’s not-so-subtle digs at those who kept pressuring him to license his work for toys, games, movies, TV shows, and so forth.
never see in Thailand..
Once again the stuffed tiger is messin’ with the little squirt’s noggin.
Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Dali and Monch did alright, having everybody on
@Dha Dha: Don’t worry, you’re better off without snow and freezing weather, although I remember when I was in Thailand one May the searing heat was awful.
I would never have thought that Calvin would put marketability before artistic integrity, like he rather unexpectedly shows by changing the snowman in the last panel.
Thomas Kinkaid as a child.
I find the need for a good deep wallow from time to time…http://calvinandhobbes.wikia.com/wiki/Calvin’s_snowmen
Marketability has a strong pull.
Calvin’s Snowmen are some of the best parts of the strip. Outside Hobbes of course.
Calvin hasn’t figured out yet that the marketable stuff pays for what you’d REALLY rather create. (You think Tyler Perry really enjoys dressing as Madea?)
Given his size, how does Calvin put the head on?
Actually I like Calvin’s first snowman. It shows actual talent. His snowmen always have.
I know a few people who are like Calvin’s 1st snowman.
Curious…How does Calvin reach up to put the head this snowman? I see no sign of a ladder?
Holy cow, how does Calvin manage to make a snowman like that?
Yeah, it’s all about the bottom line. If it doesn’t sell what good is it. A starving artist is just one more hungry person in line at the soup kitchen.
Is there anything cuter than the 9th panel with Calvin just standing there?I like both of the snowmen that Calvin has made.xxx
The weird and crazy snowmen, are some of my favorite strips.
Personally, I think Calvin’s first snowman is awesome. Made me laugh out loud.
This is MAGNIFICENT!!!!!!!
Given postmodernism, marketability is more convenient for the artist. On the other hand, being able to know what is marketable requires an objective quantification of attributes that defeats postmodernism.
Calvin’s snow sculpture is me when I stub my toe
