Bill Watterson’s words of advice turned into loving comic tribute

by  in Comic News Comment

For the past year and a half, cartoonist Gavin Aung Than has been adapting inspirational quotes from famous people into comics form on his website Zen Pencils, garnering plenty of readers and media coverage along the way. But Tuesday’s installment struck a particular chord within the comics community, as it’s been making the rounds on blogs and Twitter and in email.

Mimicking Bill Watterson’s style, Than turns the Calvin and Hobbes cartoonist’s words of wisdom into a love tribute to “my biggest creative influence and someone I admire greatly as an artist.” The text below the comic is wonderful, too.
