This is my original watercolor art painting of a blue lobster, hand printed with water-based inks! A wonderfully unique summer dress or beach cover-up!

The lobster's leash reads (in French):
"I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don’t bark..."

Supposedly the French poet, Gérard de Nerval, would walk his pet lobster with a ribbon. This was his reasoning for adopting a lobster as opposed to a dog!

I recently discovered that Thibault, the lobster, is mentioned in Patti Smith & Sam Shepard's 1971 play 'Cowboy Mouth'.

Frequently asked questions about Xenotees

All clothing on which I print, is made by American Apparel. Please consult the size charts in each listing carefully, as different garments have specific fits. Men's and kid's shirts run pretty true to size, but women's garments can vary greatly. Feel free to contact me if you have any sizing questions! noelle@xenotees.com
While the ink I use it is permanent, you can greatly increase the life of the product by turning it inside out, washing in cold water, and hanging it to dry- or tumble drying on low. Everything is machine washable, and durable!
Please contact me for wholesale information. noelle@xenotees.com
If you'd like to have your order gift wrapped, I'd be happy to do that for an additional fee. Please note: I never include receipts in packages, as you already have a digital copy, and I prefer not to waste our earth's resources by printing it out on paper.
Most items ship within 3-5 business days, but some may take up to 2 weeks. Make sure to check your shopping cart for the "Ready to ship" estimate! If you need something sooner, just contact me to see if that's a possibility.
Yes! All orders shipped to a US address have an option for Priority Mail or Priority Mail Express when checking out. For International orders, please contact me for time and cost on any shipping upgrades.

Please note: when you choose an expedited shipping method, it only speeds up your order's time in transit, not how quickly it will be processed. Again, contact me if you need something sooner than your scheduled ship date, and I will do my best to comply.
