|Making his way through the wild forest under the pale light of a full
moon, a huge lobster carries a bag of presents as he travels from house
to house. In the background is a humble cottage, cheering light
streaming from the window. What yuletide treats might the occupants
have received from this giant crustacean?
This is an 8.5" x 5.5"
greeting card. It's lovingly printed in black and white by minimum wage
copy-shop employees onto FSC certified 20% recycled Ultra Bright White
cardstock from a high quality scan of my original art, then hand-folded
by me. The scratchboard technique gives it the look of both pen and ink
illustration and old-time woodcuts.
Inside the card is an original poem which reads:
The presents all are wrapped just so
Each ribbon in its place,
Loaded up he'll slowly go
With heed and care apace.
Bearing treats for one and all
Despite their human flaws,
With a scuttle at the door arrives
A gift from sandy claws.

Includes an appropriately sized white envelope.
