Farmingdale graphic artist Alan Claude’s new poster, “Goat Island Clammers” debut Friday at the Yarmouth Clam Festival. The print features two iconic clam diggers with Goat Island Lighthouse in the background under a hazy blue sky.

Claude has worked on his print for more than three years. During many visits to the lighthouse, he hoped to photograph the perfect angles with contrasting shadows, however, he felt something was missing. It wasn’t until one morning when he spotted a father and son clamming together in front of the lighthouse, that he realized he had found the missing piece. The clammers just fit. Reasoning that clamming is an important part of Maine’s culture and coastal life, he was excited to implement and illustrate the clam diggers into his artwork.

Claude’s art is considered “Poster Style” reminiscent of the 1920’s travel posters with its use of solid, bright, and muted colors.
