Calvin and Hobbes Meet Harry Potter

Calvin and Hobbes gets Potterized

This was another outcome of the House Cup competition.  My buddy, Joe, did the art.  I had fun with the quote boxes.  Poor Ron learning how to ride a broom...

The original three strips had Calvin learning to ride a bike.

Bevan's Portal Birthday Cookies

My husband finally caught up to me in age (he's 22 days younger than me) on Sept. 28th.  To celebrate his birthday I made him cookies (because he doesn't like cake).  While discussing what to make, he had suggested Portal cookies.  So that I what I made him.

Stick figure Chell.

Makes her first portal.

Add it looks delicious.

Time to make the second one.

Remember: Portals only stick to surfaces coated in moon dust.

Time to test the portals.

Well, the gun seems intact.

That must mean she'll be safe.

It works!

More portals.

They were delicious!  The blue cookies are chocolate chip cookies and the orange ones are butterscotch chip cookies.
