Happy Valentine’s Day! Here is my latest, silliest collage based on Pheobe’s, of the show Friends, lobster love idea. Pheobe says to Ross regarding Rachel when he gets sad about her possibly dating another guy: “She’s your lobster…. It’s a known fact that lobsters fall in love and mate for life. You know you can actually see old lobster couples walking around their tank and holding claws!” Aw, Friends.
This collage was made for two musicians in Milwaukee, Michael Clobes of Cold Sweat and The Brew City Horns, and Chrissy Dzioba of The Whiskeybelles (I’m a huge fan!). My good friend, Chrissy, commissioned the illustration art as a Valentine’s Day gift and wanted to represent the cities where they are from in the collage. Santiago, Chile is on the left and Milwaukee is on the right. Michael plays an Edwards trombone and the guitar in the art is Chrissy’s custom Gibson SJ-200 Bob Dylan Player’s Edition. They are just two cute lobster musicians floating around in their row boat, and so in love.

If you’d like a custom collage with your lobster for an anniversary gift (paper year, perhaps?), engagement present, or any other occasion, please contact me. And, don’t worry if you haven’t found your lobster yet. I never thought I’d find mine, but it happened. Love to you all!
