In case you were wondering where Bucket List Buddy and Pail had come from, well a doodle, plain and simple. My sister is a travel writer and we were emailing each other and I attached Pail to the email and jokingly suggested that Pail would be a funny icon for one of her articles. She agreed. So, Pail was painted and refined and decided that he needed a partner in crime to participate in the Bucket List items and Buddy was created.
The rest, as they say, is history.
