A lot happened about the author of Calvin & Hobbes lately in the world and I was thinking it would be cool to share with you the news.
INTERVIEW FOR MENTAL_FLOSS
This news' very old, now, but for people not knowing it, you can read an interview of Bill Watterson here.
STRIPPED MOVIE POSTER
Stripped, a documentary about "cartoonists struggling with the death of newspapers and the future of the medium" got the voice of Bill Watterson in it (watch the trailer), and a panel made by the artist for its movie poster!
Bill Watterson also won the Grand Prix of the 41th Angoulême International Comics Festival, the largest comics festival in Europe!
PEARL AND SWINE
Guess who was the guest artist for three strips of Pearl and Swine, the comic strip drew by Stephan Pastis? The Washington Post has the answer (see also the blog post of the author here).
The author winning the Grand Prix of the Angoulême International Comics Festival is also supposed to become the president of the next edition and draw the cover art. Bill accepted, but may only attend there anonymously.
That's all for now. Doesn't hesitate to tell me if I missed other important news; I'll make sure to include them in this journal or the next one if I have enough of them. ^^
