I have to admit that when I got this commission, I was really nervous about whether or not the client would like the finished product. Part of the reason was that it was a man who ordered it and the other part was because he just said “do whatever you want.”

Now, most of the time, if I hear those four words, I am in heaven because I can truly create, something that I am stripped of quite frequently during my process. More often than not, my clients try to micromanage every strip of paper and every twist or twirl. I usually send progress pics and the result is generally frustrating because they question every design decision. “Are you going to leave that area blank?” “Can you use more pink.” And so on and so forth.

So when it came time to decide on the overall look and feel of this piece, I knew immediately what I wanted and didn’t have to worry about whether or not the client was on the same wavelength. Now at first it made me a little uncomfortable, but once I set my mind and began working, the project turned into an absolute blast!

Construction

This is a really large piece at 11×14. But I think the extra size allowed me to really get some nice details in place. It is my sincerest hope that someone else orders a lobster so I can do another in different colors and different patterns because this is one of my favorite designs. Maybe I should make myself one… Who knows!

I used 1/4″ paper for this piece. It is a combination of boucle fill, multi-strip spirals, and regular quills. The colors were chosen by the client, and I think they really helped make it spectacular. But, any triple-combination would look nice in my opinion.
