Hi everyone, I've been a fan of the Go language. But I'm here today to show my work from the other side - I'm also an artist.

My friend wanted me to design an original version of the Gopher sticker that nobody will have. I told her my style isn't cute and in fact I like to draw "ugly" manga faces and she said she'd go for it so I went on to design one and only Gopher for her.

I'm not sure if she'll love it or be shocked by it, but I'm sure it will put all the other laptop gophers to shame... or the other way round. We'll see.

What do you think? Hate it or love it? Leave a comment for me.

It's horrible and I would love to see a series. Can you do one for every major language?

It's tempting, but not every language has a mascot that's worth making a pun off. I feel that Go's gopher is a really strong mascot and really contribute to the language's fan base. Which one should be next?
