Everything you need to know to draw a Lobster Boy!

Lobster Boy

Lobster Boy

Part Lobster Part Man!

Mythical beast or circus freak? I mean, it’s a valid question, but one which I rudely answer, “Shut it Mr, I wanna draws a people with lobster claws!”

Now that we have that out of the way let’s get down to business. First off let’s establish that there is a very famous real world Lobster Boy named Grady Stiles who’s tale is rife with carnie drama, alcohol, abuse and murder. If you wanna draw him, feel free… But I warn you, it is not a tale that impresses you with the kindness in humanity…

So I’m less interested in the disappointment that the real world wrought and way more into in the poster version. What the tens of thousands of kids buying their tickets to see said lobstosapien imagined they were going to see when they rounded that tent flap…

So here we go, make us proud!

  • Part lobster
  • Part man
  • Probably obscenely strong
  • One would assume smelly
  • Potentially delicious
    • reminder

      Like you need more than that! Just get your ass doodling, have fun and don’t forget to send it in! You’ve got til the 15th… And you can’t win if you don’t draw! So get going!

You know, if someone were to ask me out of the blue if i wanted to be part of a lobster family, this is not the scene i would imagine… I had no idea I had such an anti-crustacean prejudice, thank you for making me know I need to be a better person from this day forward! Also the arrow for clarity cracks me up!

I mean unless you’re one of those weird lobster gut eaters all most of us eat are the tails and claws, and those look pretty lobstery, so, I’m pretty sure this dude is fair game!

Man the double breasted cowboy hat is making me happy as hell! Pretty sure that’s a lobster legged hoverboard and it sure looks like he’s wearing panties and a corset… but as this is a youth entry, I’m assuming that’s just my creepy imagination or perchance just coincidence.

Yesss! I love the guess the portrait game! Let me try a few… That teeny “come to the light Carol Anne” woman? … Anne Hathaway?… Silver Spoons era Ricky Schroeder? or hell … The poofy haired kid from Tool Time? gotta be one of those! And nice to have you back Carol!

See, it’s funny… As sad as he is, I could totally eat mine, but maybe it’s the clothing that makes it seem so wrong to eat this guy? I mean he’s pretty dang lobstery, but somehow i just imagine he’d taste like a rugby shirt and shoe leather…

Now I’m not sure how many of you have ever worn straps and a shirt that barely tucks in… but believe me if you haven’t, know that in itself is enough to make one “crabby” … also I’m impressed with how much having claws has allowed this sean beast’s locks to get full on out of control!

Man i wonder how deep into middle america you’d have to go before you legit had someone call your malformed youth “demon” these days? I mean few years back you coulda just called northern florida and potentially iowa, but nowadays seems like it’s all the rage… I say wear those claws like a badge of honor kid… proves you aint them!
