François Schuiten, like the creator of Tintin, is Belgian, and he’s best known for his drawing in the series Les Cités Obscures, a collaboration with his childhood friend, Benoît Peeters.

It's my icon now on this post.

And here's a link to the full image:

He'd originally done it in 1927, trying to make money by coming up with 12 covers for Liberty magazine. The covers weren't published for Liberty but were used in various places (& now are t-shirts, puzzles, mugs, glasses, playing cards, cocktail napkins, etc.).
