Croatian illustrator Vanja Mrgan was sitting on the toilet recently when he came up with the idea of drawing beards on beardless figures. "Instantly, I conjured a list of characters that need beards and raced to my computer to get to work," explains the artist.

He's already posted several sketches of familiar and now-whiskered video game characters like Black Mage, Wario, and Mr. Game & Watch. He says he'll keep drawing them until he runs out of ideas, and hopes to hear suggestions on other iconic faces you want to see with beards.

Since he's already created a few portraits of non-humans, I wonder if he'd be willing to add a beard to the car from Jaleco's City Connection?
