Advice on Confectionery project

Hey guys,

Doing a project regarding 'creative confectionery', with the whole established concept being a sweet for fishermen that provides energy and nausea relief when eaten. I've decided to create a waterproof pouch, but getting stuck on the kind of surface graphics that could go on there. As its for manly men at seas, I want a quite expressive approach and have looked into brush strokes that reflect waves...in a black and white colour scheme. But it's missing key elements of fishing etc...

Just wondered if anyone has any ideas? I appreciate it very much! Ollie :)

Oh man!

You could go to town on this one!
Sailor Jerry, old school tattoo art is really big right now as it hand typography.
That sort of look would work with a limited pallet.

Also, there's the emergency equipment type of look. "Pull in case of emergency" type thing you'd see on an inflatable raft or tum-tin.
Tip: I worked on ship. Having a spot to put you own name is handy as you live in close confines with your shipmates and being able to ID your stuff is always a challenge.
