The Greater Midwestern Squidowl wishes you a tentacle-filled new year

As New Year's Eve approaches, this curious creature, created by Phineas X. Jones (and featured on the Half Acre Beer holiday card), hopes you have a weird and wonderful new year, filled with cryptids and unexpected cephalopods.

You can see more of Jones' cephalopod hybrids on Flickr and his site, aptly named Octophant.
