Spring newsletter for Daniel


Please please let me brag. I feel you lobstersquad readers will be a much more appreciative audience than anyone else I know.
This elegantly laid out page you see before you is the spring newsletter for Daniel Boulud´s restaurants. Does that merit a !!!!!!!! or what?
This is why I drew the live crayfish. For anyone else I´d have googled the little beasties and left it at that, but I´m a snob before anything else, and a world famous chef well deserves a trip to the market and a tussle with clawed creatures.
This was a really fun job to do, and working with Carla from the public relations team was a pleasure.
Really too bad that I can´t go and get my payment in kind.

Congratulations! Payment in food would have been divine. Too bad there are some things you just can't trade.

Beautiful, as always! You even manage to make a lobster look cute (and I'm a huge lobster-phobe).
These must be some very lucky people who get to enjoy your artistic skills like this;)

Excellent! And however shameless, the self-promotion is totally deserved.

The live crayfish reminds me of when our older girl was maybe three. We'd bought live crayfish at Soulard Market in St. Louis, and she was fascinated by them. So my wife taught her how to pick one up behind the claws. My daughter walked proudly through the crowded market carrying a very angry crayfish in front of her. The crowds parted almost magically to let her through.
