Quahogs (pronounced co-hogs or kwo-hogs), also know as Count Necks, Little Necks, Top Necks or Cherrystone Clams, are the hard shelled clams found burrowing in sands, muds and human bellies around Rhode Island, the "Cooler and Warmer" state. This design was rejected as a promotional tourism poster to bring in more wealthy visitors to our tiny state.

Walker Mettling is a cartoonist and printmaker in Providence, RI. He runs the Providence Comics Consortium (PCC), a micro-publishing edu-tainment project focused on free comics/publishing workshops for kids at libraries, making tons of publications, improvisational art liberation and strengthening the bonds of artists intergenerationally. The inspiration for this print came from a sunday morning session of the PCC Sketchbook Church.
