I just read a rather dated post of your requesting for an animated Avatar (GIF).
I see that you have found one (probably one selected from the net). But, in case You’re interested in a more personal, more custom built Avatar that is animated, feel free to let me know. I build them and there are several members here that bear my tradmark work. I’m sorry no one informed you of this.
yep waerson was really turned off by the mass marketing of Peanuts and garefield. And his art just few in the face of those photocopied identical panels that some cartoonists use. Maybe if he ever needed to money real bad he’d relent, i have no idea what he does now. But Calvin and Hobbes was among other things a clebration of the cartoonists art, the sheer exuberance was a pleasure in itself
Sorry for leaving three identical shouts, my computer system acts up. Yeah, I have all the books, Bill always refused to go down the mass marketing route, so no cuddley hobbes or calving mugs to buy! The water colour/coloured inked sunday strips were great but the books don’t really reproduce these.
