♦ We put something up featuring Disney animator Brian Kesinger who creates a series of Star Wars related images in the style of Calvin And Hobbes a while back and he has been running some more great images so here they are. Thanks to boredpanda for tipping us off to the new ones…

Brian Kesinger is a visual artist who has worked for Walt Disney Studios for over 16 years, but his work outside of the movie business gets fans going just as much as his animation. This time he has created a magical mashup universe, putting a Calvin And Hobbes twist on everybody’s favorite Star Wars: The Force Awakens characters, and it works perfectly.

“Being a kid in the ’80s I was raised on a steady diet of Disney, Star Wars, and comic books, so being able to work on so many amazing films and projects has really been a dream come true,” Brian informed The Verge. Kesinger admitted admiring Bill Watterson, the creator of Calvin & Hobbes deeply. “I was always amazed at how he could draw anything from cute stuffed tigers to ferocious dinosaurs piloting fighter jets. His inking style seemed so casual and loose and yet the drawings were so solid.”

“I’m not the first to mash-up Calvin & Hobbes with pop culture,” the artist who has worked on Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled, and Tarzan said. “[but] I think the difference here is that I went a little deeper with the idea. Once I really made the comparison that Kylo Ren was probably a difficult child much like Calvin, it really resonated with people. The metaphor was solidified when I made Darth Vader Kylo’s imaginary friend.”
