Final Sketch for Luv & Bertie, Potion Shop Couple
His bib has the same symbol as the Potion Shop.

Takes care of the baby.

“All the other stores have one clerk, but we hadn’t decided the details for the potion shop and item check, so we had 5 designers sketch them. We chose the characters that we could expand our ideas upon the most. There were a lot of designs that weren’t used, and it’s a real shame! We rearranged some of them to use as different characters instead.”
