Happy New Year 2012 by Loopydave Happy New Year 2012 by Loopydave
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!

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!

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 :)

Now that, sir, is a mustache. You could poke someone's eye out with that thing. The definition of manly facial hair.

I love your fabric. It is not easy to paint sleeves so realistically. :heart: And the bottle is amazing. It looks just like a liquor bottle should, even down to the threading on the neck. The repetition of the raven was a nice touch too. That made me smile.

Just dont see enough manly mustaches like that around these days do you... probably went out of style after too many eye injuries I guess :D

My man came home with the programme :D The Garden of Unearthly Delights is the best part of the Fringe!
Awesome work! I'll have to see if I can scan it to show you :D Did they give you a theme or let you run wild? I really like the whole piece and I'm trying to figure out all the inspiration behind it :)

I was commissioned by a design agency whose client was the GoUD organisers. The agencies brief was really quite specific but in saying that, its a client I've worked with before and they were still quite flexible and open to my input. Agency has some fantastic ideas for GoUD next year too, so hopefully they still have the account then and I can work with them again. :D

The illustration is a blast (and the reflections on the bottle are mind-numbing, but then again, so are the hands, face, etc.)!

Cheers my friend - hope 2012 is great for both of us!
Glad someone noticed the details on the bottle - his reflection on the glass was probably the bit that pleased me most as I painted :D
