This is where I'd usually talk a bit about the character... but truth be told, I really don't know much about him. I discovered him about two weeks ago, when I was walking through a flea market and I saw some old drinking cup with him on it (though oddly, he was wearing a red scarf). He's from an old newspaper comic strip named "Pogo", which started in the 1940's (and sadly ended in the 70's). While I haven't read too many of them, they do seem to be pretty good, so I recommend you look some of them up on Google Image Search. There's also a Chuck Jones-produced cartoon and a stop-motion short based on the comic, but I hear both are pretty well hated by Pogo fans, so check 'em out if you're curious (I haven't yet).
(I like his character design, which is why I to drew him. That, and like I've said in the past, I like drawing obscure characters. I dare say Albert more than qualifies in that department.)
Altered the description a bit. The original was all doom and gloom because I didn't like the picture too well.
I edited the picture quite a bit, but mostly only the head. I made the left side of his head more rounded, practically redrew the eyes completely, and altered the pupils a bit. Besides that, I reduced the light shading a bit, because I felt it was too bright. There was also the occasional line fixing, too.
Overall, I'm happier with the picture now. Click here to see the original (1.0)
Changed the lines on his chest, fixed some lines on his right eye, and removed the white outline. I also changed the background a bit... because why not.
