Mural: Calvin and Hobbes

Calvin and Hobbes Mural by How Brown Met Blue

"Freehand playroom mural, donated to the Reynold's Home, a shelter for women and children.

I've always been a HUGE fan of this comic strip. Working on this mural, staring at every minute detail, i gained a greater appreciation for watterson's beautiful work. i tried to respect the original works as much as possible, giving my full attention to even the smallest detail and trying to get the colors just right. attempting to recreate the look of watercolors using only latex paint proved to be quite difficult.

I hope i did 'em justice.

For some reason, i don't think this photo truly shows people how big this mural actually is. i think it was something like 18 feet wide by 10 feet high."
