Beautiful details - love the unusual color choices, offset outlines and willingness to tweak the design in sketch form before going too deep with the polished version.

A high end cannabis company specializing in cultivation and extraction based in California.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are looking at generating a cartoon image that will be used as a promotional item for the cannabis strain Strawberry Banana. Here is a brief overview of what we are looking for:
1.) Our company name is Decibel Gardens so we are trying to incorporate a theme of music with our illustrations.
2.) The idea for a sticker is a banana wearing headphones listening to music. We want a speaker or something indicating the volume is turned up loud! The banana will have blood shot eyes and have a joint in hand. The section of the headphones that go over the ears will be strawberries screaming on both sides.
3.) We would like to have the drawings be very detailed. Cartoons that come to mind where we would like to see similarities are Ren n' Stimpy & Dr. Seus.
4.) We would like to see our company's name Decibel Gardens somehow incorporated into the background of the drawing. A poster on a wall, graffiti, etc.
5.) Also if on the headphones or an item in the drawings could say dB somewhere which is the abbreviation for decibel.
6.) Lastly the strain Strawberry Banana needs to be the main focus. We want this variety to be more noticeable than the brand itself. So the variety name needs to be bold and easily read with cool font.
This is supposed to be a fun design that is bright and catches the publics eye. It will be used for stickers, posters, t shirts, etc. The fourth image I attached is our packaging for our extraction. The colors used here are extremely vibrant. Would be great if the yellow for the banana could be somewhat as sharp as the yellow here and the red for the strawberry being similar to this color as well. We are trying to avoid the typical colors of Strawberry Banana being pink like a blended color.
