This crabby crustacean knows you're after him, so he's backed himself into a corner, claws on the defense. He's heard about the complimentary "hot tub" excursions from which, oddly enough, none of his buddies have ever returned . . .

This crab image is actually life-sized, because we grow 'em big here in Washington State! Each Dungeness we catch and keep weighs between two and three pounds and yields 25% of his weight in luscious, delicate, melt-in-your-mouth white meat. In the summer we have been known to din upon fresh-caught crab for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Handpainted on indoor-outdoor commercial fabric, this 14" x 20" pillow will look great on your sofa, hammock, deck furniture, even your rowboat or cabin cruiser. The permanent textile colors are bright and durable, sure to stand up to many seasons of sun, wind, rain and global climate change. His image was drawn from a live crab nicknamed Fabio; even though he has passed on (rest his soul), his memory will live on as long as people lounge about, leaning against pillows.

Not a transfer or print, but a handpainted original. Designed, painted, sewn, copyighted, stuffed and signed by the artist on a beautiful island in Washington State. Positively imbued with oodles of beachy vibes and created with a perfectionist's attention to detail.

Help keep Fabio's memory alive! (BTW, he was delicious!)
