Another icon for a liquor label working with designer Chris Travers. The thing with these is that after drawing a dozen bears, I take the one that is working the best and start reducing the detail until it becomes a simple graphic icon. With this one I could have refined and simplified it even further, but in so doing it loses something of the original idea. The trick is knowing when to stop. So this still retains some of the angular line work of the original thumbnail sketch.
