Bill Watterson’s First New Art in 16 Years to Raise Funds for Parkinson’s Research!


As reported by The Washington Post, Bill Waterson of Calvin & Hobbes fame, has unveiled what is believed to be his first publicly viewed piece of artwork in 16 years. The painting - “6-by-8” oil on board - is of the character Petey Otterloop from Richard Thompson’s comic strip “Cul de Sac.” The piece is Watterson’s contribution to the Team Cul de Sac fundraising project for Parkinson’s research.

Team Cul de Sac aims raise $250,000 for Parkinson’s research through such efforts as an Andrews McMeel-published book of “Cul de Sac”-inspired art created by dozens of Thompson’s professional colleagues, including Watterson.
