Illustration Friday - "Homage"

This week Illustration Friday's topic is Homage.

(please click the image to read)

Calvin and Hobbes are still so inspiring and this is a pale and pathetic homage to their creator. (I'm not worthy)
Bill Watterson, you are missed - please come back.

This isn't semi-autobiographical in any way...

Was really flattered that my last IF piece reminded you of Calvin & Hobbes and so pleased you've done you homage to this great character, I'm a big fan. You cartoon is brilliant, what a great approach, a true homage :)

You know that I'm most bothered about the furry feline who, as I would expect, is great. I miss being young and the crazy adventures...boo hoo :-(

this is really funny. I used to get the books with calvin and hobbes. Like 200 comics and I would read them in an hour. I devoured C&H! I like the grown up version, you might be onto something...

Very fun! I love Calvin & Hobbes and your illustration make me laugh to think this might have been if they'd aged. Well done illustration, good colors.
