Dear Bill Watterson,

There aren’t many people who maintain integrity through the fire. Help the rest of us understand how to live a life worth living.

A talk with Lex will be different than journalistic interviews: in depth and focused on what matters. Here’s an interview with producer Rick Rubin that you’ll love: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_szemxPcTI

We know you value your privacy. You would be doing a huge service to everyone who has taken inspiration from your work and life.

All proceeds will go to Team Cul de Sac. (Team Cul de Sac: Please reach out to Mr. Watterson!)

Your fans

Dear skeptics,

At the very least this is worth a shot.

I don’t think Bill has anything against speaking his mind. He avoids journalistic interviews, which tend toward 10-second sound bites (extra points if you get that reference), but has done a couple of very extensive interviews. Here’s my favorite:

Granted, he’s never talked much about his actual life, but I think he’d be open to it in the right format. I’m making a guess that Bill enjoys conversation podcasts. He’s certainly not the type to reach out to and try to land a high profile interview.

Why Team Cul de Sac? His first release of original artwork after Calvin Hobbes (16 years!) was for this Parkinson’s research fundraising group, in honor of his late friend and cohort Richard Thompson.

Why Lex? I simply think he would have the best conversation. Feasibility is a concern. If anyone has suggestions for other interviewers, reach out to me @milesarthurkim on Twitter.

Please put in a good buck! You can withdraw at any time, and you’ll get your money back if it doesn’t work out.

Miles
