“Jesse’s Lemonade Stand [Label]” by Jesse Baggs

I really enjoy working with Tilted Mash, so when they offered to name their new pink lemonade after me, you might say I was tickled pink. It was almost like my reputation for loving girlie drinks preceded me! Furthermore, I got to make this totally personal illustration, which not only features my wife and children, but is also an homage to one of my favorite children’s books, The Big Orange Splot by the great Daniel Pinkwater (Hmm, another pink drink? Coincidence, or something more?). May we all have the freedom to say, “My life is me and I am it. It looks like me and all my dreams.”
