|Calvin and Hobbes continues to inspire artists such as Jaime Posadas. The words are pure Calvin.|
|He ought to know, he did both.|
Calvin: "People always make the mistake of thinking art is created for them. But really, art is a private language for sophisticates to congratulate themselves on their superiority to the rest of the world. As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance."To which the much more worldly Hobbes adds:
Hobbes: "Van Gogh would've sold more than one painting if he'd put tigers in them."

|I've altered Cruz's poster slightly to make it more readable online. Digital images often do not handle the subtleties of white and |
almost white very well.
|Pablo Picasso. Notice the croissants on the edge of the |
table splayed out like a child's fingers.
|Even in black and white, Adams' landscapes seem colorful to our|
minds. Although he experimented with color film late in his career, he was not particularly fond of it.
|Starry Night, 1889. At first glance, van Gogh seemed to be a |
man of few words. Yet his words in letters to his brother
suggest otherwise. They were as revealing as his paintings.
