I make no secret of my incredible affection for Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson, who on the whole is a pretty reclusive author, but when he speaks he makes it count.
So two great links to share. In the first, Fast Company pulled four great principles on creativity from his interviews in the movie Stripped.
And in the second, Slate reprinted the cartoon blog Zen Pencil’s cartoon rendering of part of Bill Watterson’s commencement speech at Kenyon College about creating a life that’s in tune with your values.
Just about everything I’ve learned in life seems like it came from Calvin and Hobbes, from the power of imagination to our powerlessness on some days when even lucky rocketship underpants can’t help. Bill Watterson is a national treasure.
