Our Story

The Lobster Studio creates greeting cards, art prints, and gift items starring an adorable array of picture book-inspired characters illustrated by Ken Crossland, an artist and children's book designer. The company is co-run with his wife, actor/producer Rachel Lauren James.

The Lobster Studio features the adorable and irresistible Fred + Nym and The Little Lobster lines of products, the former capturing the super-cute world and adventures of Ken and Rachel’s two real-life cats, Fred and—you guessed it—Nym. Each card is printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper, and a portion of our profits goes to no-kill animal shelters and mental health charities.
