The third in a series of John Gilroy-inspired prints celebrating Krewe du Brew.

Thoughts

I don’t feel I have much more to add that hasn’t already been said in the possum and alligator prints.

I did face a new challenge when it came to arranging the crawfish. The plan had been to illustrate the little guys riding a red tidal wave—like you’d expect from a crawfish boil that was overturned.

However that effectively changed the tone of the poster from comedy to horror so the liquid wave was scrapped.

I have loved a number of John Gilroy’s My Goodness My Guinness ads for as long as I can remember—and for nearly as long I’ve wanted to pay tribute by making something like them.
