World Record Lobster MASTERWORK CANVAS EDITION

NOTES: When Europeans first arrived in the New World, lobsters were so plentiful that a minor storm could deposit two feet tall piles of the crustacean along the shoreline. They were so abundant and easy to harvest that they were known asthe poor man’s chicken. Flick Ford brings us, in all its Technicolor glory, the world record lobster that was caught in 1977 off Nova Scotia, Canada, weighing in at 44 pounds, 6 ounces, measuring nearly four feet long. If it takes five to seven years for a lobster to reach the weight of one pound, we can only wonder how old this world record lobster was. We don’t often get the chance to see just how beautiful these creatures are when emerging fresh from the trap. Perfect for the beach house or kitchen, you can order your lobster in one of three sizes: 1 1/2 lbs (paper), 4 lbs (canvas) or one of the (15) world record 44 lb behemoths (canvas).

Flick Ford bio

"Flick Ford fell in love with fishing at age five. His father, an accomplished fly-fisherman and talented commercial artist/copywriter, instilled in him a deep respect for nature and nurtured his early creativity. Born in 1954 in Atlanta, Flick was raised in Westchester County, New York. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s Flick fished the Adirondacks, New England, Long Island Sound, Chesapeake Bay, Virginia and the woodland lakes of Quebec, while pursuing two other loves: music (as lead singer in a garage rock band) and art. He took formal watercolor classes in the 1960s; figure drawing and graphic design classes from1973 to 1976 and then studied art at Evergreen State College in Washington State. Flick moved to New York City in 1978 and dove into the audio/visual scene including indie film, video, underground publishing, cartooning, illustration as well as reconnecting with music. He performed in the East Village with several bands, and continues to write, play harmonica and sing lead vocals for one of them, The Crazy Pages, which was formed in 1988. Ford left New York in 1993, heading for the Hudson Highlands where he quickly became obsessed with fishing the NYC watershed. As he branched out to many of the brook trout places where he had previously fished in parts of the Adirondacks and Vermont, the effects of over twenty years of pollution, over- development and acid rain became painfully apparent. "I felt I should start to keep a record of the fish I caught and decided to do it in watercolor paintings. I just want to catch and paint these fish, and show how they appear to me in all their iridescent beauty." Today Ford makes his home in Putnam County, New York. He fishes more than 100 days a year and ties his own flies. He selects early every fish he paints for its relative size and beauty. After landing a fish, he quickly gets a digital photo before the colors fade, carefully measures it in all dimensions, sketches details, counts scales, fin rays and finally traces it to get its actual outline. He has developed a technique of successive washes utilizing masking friskets and painstakingly detailed dry brush that make these fish truly come to life on paper. "
