Snow Day(s) Comic!

In honor of The Blizzard(!) I'm posting another comic that has been waiting to see the light of day. 

This one actually began life as an example for my cartooning class. The assignment was to study the work of a cartoonist, then create an homage comic, trying to emulate the style of the artist. I chose the amazing Bill Watterson and I almost don't want to say that as I fall far short. However, it became something else, somehting more me, so....Anyway the comic was actually drawn almost 4 years ago to the week, on another snow day, and inked and finished up today.

It draws upon my tendency to quote Star Wars in situations where the quote is less than appropriate and the imitable Calvin's tendency to drift off into his imagination, like all of us dreamers.
