This gives us all of the feels.

There’s nothing we could have done to prepare for the latest viral phenomenon rippling in the wake of The Force Awakens

In one corner is a movie that this week became highest-grossing film of all time. In the other, the beloved comic Calvin and Hobbes. All it took was crafty artist Brian Kesinger to give us the mashup of our dreams. 

His Instagram collection is sweepingly melodramatic and shockingly beautiful. And upon its Wednesday debut, it has stolen our hearts.

Kesinger’s Instagram page and Etsy shop reveal an exuberant dedication to vibrant art with a nerdy, gooey center. He can also draw a mean Captain Phasma.
