No Crap - Crab-Mac-Claw the Crab, Asbjorn Lonvig,
Inspired from my love to the sea, my past as a crab catcher, from the joy of making motifs that communicate in a very simple way.
If you see the name No-Crap - it is the prior name of Crab-Mac-Claw.
The second time a translator told me, that he could not be called No-Crap in American English - I gave in.
At the exhibition "International Contemporary Exhibition" in Rome I met Jose Dali.
Son of Salvador Dalí.
Jose Dali exhibited motifs from Venice, where he lives, and I showed anything I had.
I gave Jose a letter in Italian, which was intended to all Italians and all Romans.
At the bottom of this letter there was a poster from the LUCCA project.
He saw Crab-Mac-Claw.
He laughed, and laughed, and laughed.............sincerely.
He became so happy.
From that moment I knew, that Crap-Mac-Claw is a lucky star in my prodction.
He had just been renamed from No-Crap to Crab-Mac-Claw.
Crab-Mac-Claw will probably become the new logo of my world wide fairy tale activities.
On my way home - in the airport of Rome - I bought a huge book.
Salvador Dalí - la vita e l'opera. I had to know more about Jose's father. Jose's background.
I still can't imagine why Jose paints tiny naturalistic watercolor pictures with motifs from Venice?
The only resemblence to Salvador Dalí is Jose's bird!!!!!
And then of cause Crab-Mac-Claw is the main character in the children's book "The cuttlefish Octo-Pus and the crab Crab-Mac-Claw".
