I found this brainstorming method really useful!  It's so much easier than sitting around trying to pick something out of the ether.

I did a terrible sketch, then I did a bunch of inking. Here are a couple of pages that I liked from that process:

In the end, this is what I constructed:

I'm not entirely happy with it, so I may revisit it when I'm fresh.  I like how the bees turned out, but I'm not very good with color and wasn't sure what I was going for.  I think the bee veil needs to be redone, because it looks out of place, and the person's arms got a little weird and tentacly.  Overall, though, I feel like I learned a lot and am excited about experimenting again soon.

EDIT:
Okay, I went back the next day and re-inked the arms and hat.  I also added in a face and shoulders.  I've scrapped the colors for now, but I'm much happier with it overall.

AND FINALLY, I've worked out something I can live with.  I'm calling this the final edit:
