If you’re feeling a little down on this gloomy winter day, you’ve come to the right place. Redditor Nite4awk has created a smile-worthy set of photoshopped images that plant “too smart for his own good” Calvin and his partner-in-crime tiger, Hobbes, in a wide variety of real-life scenes.
Bill Watterson’s daily comic strip ran for nearly 10 years – 1985 to 1995 – and a total of 18 books were published that showed the duo’s imaginative adventures. Interestingly, Watterson insists that his cartoon strips stand on their own as an art form, so there’s hardly any Calvin and Hobbes in merchandising of any sort on the market.
Nite4awk was kind enough to upload the high-res versions of these images on Imgur, that is, if you’re looking to change up your desktop wallpaper. Out of the 15 he created, these are our favorites.
