Calvin and Hobbes in the woods

A HUGE portion of my childhood was spent sprawled out on the floor, reading and re-reading Calvin & Hobbes books until the covers fell off, and the pages were ripped and tattered. I was always a bit envious that my stuffed animals never went on wild adventures with me (something I’m not quite over yet), and I even painstakingly made a clay mobile of Calvin, Hobbes, Suzy, and bully Moe once in art class. Seriously, I was a die hard fan. And so I must thank freelance photographer Michael S. Den Beste for bringing these BFFs to life by photoshopping the two frolicking against real-life scenery – that first image makes my heart burst! Monday morning just got a whole lot brighter.

  1. So delayed, but oh how I love this. I too was a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan — and still have many, many C&H books sitting on a bookshelf in my apartment, equally as tattered. What a great art series!

    I just brought in some of my Calvin and Hobbes books to my 5th graders, and now they can’t get enough of them! At Christmas I even tried to convince them to name our class elf Hobbes.
