Here are some sketches I've tried to capture the spirit of the BGH in a more stylised, exaggerated manner. With a more standard yet slightly exaggerated version on the left, and far more stylised 'toonish' adaptations towards the right.
Proud, pompous and well experienced in his art, yet ultimately ready to be ridiculed.
As of yet, I am favouring the bottom right most design as it captures the spirit of the BGH with a more distinctive and readible silhouette. Yet, I am keen to hear your thoughts and feedback as to which design is more headed in the right direction.
