Default My first couple beer labels

I'm an illustrator/web designer, so coming up with the labels is one of my favorite parts of making beer (besides, you know, drinking it). Here are a few labels from my 1st two batches of homebrew.

I like the Siamese twin one for the Batch 2.

Excellent labels. I think I like the skull concept for the second one.

Thanks!! I'm torn about which one to use for the 2nd batch. I'll probably print both and go 50/50.

Some nice artwork, but I'm wondering just what those things under the 1st skull are. Not keys, not moraccas, what are those? Regards, GF.

I thought they were dome top pistons?

I also really like the siamese twins on the second label.

They're rattles. It's a baby's skull, since it was my first homebrew (hence the deformed shape and no teeth).

Don't worry, choptop. I could tell they were rattles and it was a baby skull. The "Baby Steps" gave it away.

BTW, I like all three of them!
