Pau – Hobbs

When the kids were young, we once celebrated Christmas at the Grand Canyon in Arizona. For the occasion I did a painting of Hobbs, addressing the envelope to my son Adley, whose favorite comic strip was Calvin and Hobbs. Adley was also Vice President of his student class that year. The counterpoint was the legal stamp of Krazy Kat —one of my favorite comic characters. I enjoyed getting the two comic stars together. It was a Christmas we all remember as we stayed at the El Tovar Hotel, perched on the edge of the canyon rim with snow gently falling each day.
