On Thursday, however, a price tag could be put on his original art. A late-’80s watercolor by the ”Calvin and Hobbes”creator sold at auction for $107,550, according to the Heritage Auctions website.

The artwork was published in a 1989-90 calendar. Bill Watterson ended his much-beloved strip in the mid-’90s.

Last year, the Ohio-based Watterson released his first widely public art in more than 15 years — as a contribution to Team Cul de Sac.
