It’s been a little rainier and a little cooler on the island these last few days.  While it hasn’t been as hot this year as years past, it’s still a nice change of pace.  This Sunday’s classic Calvin and Hobbes is a nice reminder of the change in weather.  More than that, I like the strip for how Watterson renders the splash from Calvin’s jump in the puddle.  It doesn’t look very “watery,” and yet it gets the idea just right.  It’s one of those artistic flourishes that reminds me of the art of Walt Simonson, who drew things in a similar vein.
