Trending: How the Seattle Seahawks use data to win — on and off the field

Whatever childhood pleasures you got out of the return of Star Wars will surely be doubled when you see one artist’s work combining “The Force Awakens” with classic comic characters “Calvin and Hobbes.”

Brian Kesinger is a story artist for Disney Animation Studios and an artist for Marvel Comics. And he states, most importantly, in his Twitter bio, that he’s a “geek.” Kesinger told Buzzfeed that he got the idea for the mashups when he saw the scene in “The Force Awakens” where Rey rides a sled down a giant sand dune on Jakku. He said an image of the famed strip featuring a young boy and his sidekick stuffed tiger “flashed in his head.”

Kesinger told Buzzfeed that “Calvin and Hobbes” creator Bill Watterson was one of his biggest artistic influences. “So it was a fun opportunity to combine two of my favorite things.”

So far Kesinger has shared four pieces via Twitter and Instagram, where you can view more of his artwork. He also has an Etsy shop where other work is for sale.
