    I have been searching for the Calvin and Hobbes OSX desktop icons, and I have discovered that they have long since disappeared. If anyone can give me any direction to where they can be, please PM me.

    Does anyone know why these were taken down and are now rare to find?
    I mean, sheesh, Bill Watterson has to put up with the Calvin urinating stickers, can't he allow us to love his creation?

    You could make some yourself if you have some scans. Just crop around ther character's head with your image editor of choice. Then get an nifty free app called Easy Bake Icon (check VersionTracker or MacUpdate) and drop the cropped image on it (it's a droplet). It will take almost any format, and output it as .icns, with all appropriate sizes (tiny to 128x128, or maybe 256x256).

    You never know. :p

    But I wish I could get a hold of Easy Bake Icon again. Lost it somewhere and haven't been able to find a place to download it since. :( If anyone knows where to download it let me know, thanks.

    Sorry to bump a super-old thread, but I love this icon set dearly and am happy to share it. (I did not make these; I do not know who did, either, I'm afraid.)

    Feel free to PM me and I will give you a link. I might not be terribly swift about replying, but I will!

    Sorry to bump this thread, but I can't send PMs just yet...

    I would be interested in that set of icons if still available.

    Thanks!

    Bill Watterson is very protective of his IP and has supposedly never allowed Calvin & Hobbes to be used in any form other than the newspaper strips and compliation books. All other uses of the characters are without the artists' permission.

    I have two

    I have 2 icons, one of Calvin and one of Hobbes. I don't recall were I got them. They are the old System 8 Icons attached to folders, so the resolution isn't very high. Just copy and paste from "get info".

    Enjoy
