If you can't eat 'em...join 'em
For as long as I can remember I've had an allergy to shellfish ...but since vector lobsters suit me much better than the real thing, when a client asked me for a simple lobster silhouette I happily set out to go above and beyond to explore the possibilities within the shape.
Even with the endless fear of being taken down by one of these live little buggers,
I still rather love them as a standard icon of the State of Maine.
The final vector file was delivered to the client and this similar version of the Lobster Sun Set design was uploaded to my printing partners
Working the image in a flexible vector format allowed me to pattern and manipulate the image for several other printing applications like t shirts or surface design.
