    Oddbill, because he is so suave, sought after, and manly cute.
    A seal to verify his status:

    Oh my god, Sizer. That makes me want to create an Oddbill beer and have that as the label. Awesome job!

    Let's see if he's up for the licensing and marketing push that OddBill Brew would require. : )

    @FC - Damn, you make me look good. Thx!

    @Oldhat - Do you brew? Got a batch of apple ale (flavored with Granny Smiths!) bottle conditioning and a pilsner lagering for the winter.

    Sizer, that one is really cool, and rather well suiting to Oddbill.

    Oldhat, I'd totes drink an Oddbill brew with that logo.

    @Oldhat - make it a dark beer and save me a bottle. :-)

    @cgordon I do! Just made my first batch last month and saving up for the second batch, a chocolate ginger ale.

    @oddbill it shall be a dark ale then! I'll spend the next little while thinking of ingredients. This will involve much drinking for..er...research.

    Part of me wanted to include OddBill's old beard, which was pointy and mighty indeed. Perhaps we can add that on in the future.
    Glad you guys like it; I needed a quick warm up for a day of drawing web stuff, so that was my 1/2 hour exercise.

    I need to start commenting on other attractive whitechapelers so that they can get their own logos. :P

    Damn fine work Paul! Dark ales all round.
    I've been back at it, so here's:

    The mighty beard had to be drawn.
    As did @allana's badness.

    @Sizer, do you have a template for putting labels on fake bottles? Or do you know of one? Totally tangential.

    Yes, Sizer I...would also like to know this. *cough*

    @ Sizer - Bwa ha! The OddBill is fabulous! You've captured quite a likeness with that one.

    @ SebFowler - The Seantaclaus drawing, too - great likeness! It looks quite like him (well, from the photographs I've seen).

    Like I said, this was a quick hack job: all I did was Google for a beer bottle with no label, then opened it in PhotoShop, brought in the OddBill graphic on a layer, made a dark rectangle of black, warped it a bit on the top and bottom to get the curve of the bottle and stacked everything like I wanted it. I also airbrush darkened the edges of the label to make it look like it's wrapping around the bottle.
    Here's a link to the PSD layer file I made for this image.
