Create portrait of imaginary character, dreamed up as a running private joke between my cousin and I, as a personal birthday present.

Character description on the graphic:
A surly animal with rebellious tendencies. The Gull is a well know kleptomaniac, unparalleled undercover agent and master of disguise. It has developed it’s own secret language: “Bab bab”, and if you are particularly lucky, you can catch a glimpse of it performing secret missions around Europe.
