Here's how it all began...
Couple thumbs to try different poses and colors.
Quick study done in a more realistic style.
Measured out the label size, penciled it in, and then inked.
With my wife's help (Really, she did it all.), she scanned them in, added text to a few, and sized them so we could print them for labels. We made a bunch of blank ones so family and friends at the party can write speech bubbles with him saying things. It was a great night.
