Happiness costs $107,550

They say you can’t buy happiness, but looks like someone has cracked it – having this original Calvin and Hobbes water color would be amazing.

This past Wednesday, a 13″ x 10″ watercolor and ink illustration was auctioned. It featured Calvin and his best friend/stuffed tiger Hobbes taking a nap on a lazy summer day (probably before a water-balloon fight with neighbor, and arch nemesis, Susie Derkins).

The nostalgic image sold for $107,550, the Washington Post reported. That’s more than $50,000 more what the low presale estimate was when it was first put up for sale by Heritage Auctions. The painting was previously owned by historian Rick Marschall, and his name along with the words “komic konnoisseur” are inscribed in the print.
