Great comic! I really like this song a lot so it was nice to see what you chose to illustrate. Well done. Thanks for sharing.
I shaved my neckbeard for this?!!

Thanks, glad you liked it! I took inspiration from some woodcuts about the effects of alcohol from the middle ages, they depicted men with different animal heads depending on their behaviour when drunk. The idea was to approach British folklore with the visual sensibilities of Sergio Leone, John Hillcoat and other western directors.
