Has it really been 16 years since we’ve seen the work of Calvin and Hobbes artist Bill Watterson?  We’ll the wait is over.  Word has hit that Watterson has contributed a painting of Petey Otterloop for an upcoming Cul de Sac fundraising project for Parkinson’s research.

“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.”

Team Cul de Sac is hoping to raise $250,000 for Parkinson’s research, and I think this piece will get them much closer.
