Jim Frommeyer and Teague Chrystie‘s tribute to Bill Watterson‘s snowmen is somewhat more than meets the eye. Frommeyer explains their process:
First thing to know is that every shot is practical. Every snowman was built from scratch. And it was all filmed on my dining table.

What you see above is by Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson. It’s special for a couple reasons. 1. It’s the first piece of original artwork from him in the 16 years since his comic ended, according to his syndicate. 2. It’s part of a fundraising effort for Team Cul de Sac, which raises funds for Parkinson’s research and works with Team Fox of the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

See for yourself after the jump.READ MORE
