Calvin and Hobbes - calligraphy project

I've posted some calligraphy works before.  I really liked this project so I thought I'd post it also.  This was the final project for my calligraphy class. I decided to do a large replica of a Bill Waterson Calvin and Hobbes sunday strip.  It was a very slow and careful process that involved many steps and experimentation to get the composition, scale and presentation all "just right."

I tiled printed the comic to 400% scale.  I graphite transfered it to Bristol Paper.  Applied water color.  Lettered it. And inked the rest of the characters.  Around a 12 hour process.
