No its not Johnny Walker ('the Ghost who drinks") - he's part of a billboard poster I painted for the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Ran out of time to finish my actual 'New Years' picture, but this image seemed somehow appropriate for the occasion - just remember to drink responsibly and don't give any of it to your pet raven.

Happy New Year everyone - ignore those Mayans and have a great 2012!

I highly disagree that you drew this, therefore its not art.

Just found out who the artist of this (cue synonym of 'staggering' that has not been used in the comments) image is! He reminds me of beloved Edgar A. Poe minus the ace . . . maybe! Your talent is extraterrestrial, sir!! Congrats!

Now that is what a moustache should look like! I hope to see more great art from you in 2013! :D

I tried to grow a moustache like that one, but got a bit annoying, particularly as it would fall into my goldfish beer all the time ;)
Cheers, and thanks for checking out my work :)
