Behold this painting by the hand of Bill Watterson, the first new art his people have seen from the Calvin & Hobbes creator in 16 years.

It's part of Team Cul de Sac, a fundraiser compilation for Parkinson's research centered around Cul de Sac, the comic starring Petey Otterloop.

Via the Washington Post:

“Let’s just say I got a package from a William Watterson ... ,” says Andrews McMeel editor Caty Neis, who is helping lead the Team Cul de Sac effort. “I have been carrying it around and showing everyone. I didn’t get my hopes up that [Watterson] would contribute. ...

“Just the fact that this is first art that we have seen from him in 16 years is just so exciting, and what a great cause.”

Yes, it's from a year ago, but we just came across it this weekend. Sharing is caring.
