This lovely charcuterie features a laser design created by Mr. Chafowitz himself. It’s one of his favorite stories, which he frequently talks about on his law office website. (There are more, I’ve only linked the three.)

Like the Velveteen Rabbit, this is a story that resonates strongly with me.

So I sat down one morning, and began to play around with a little MidJourney AI, which I use to create many of my designs. After a bit of playing around, I came up with an image of a young boy throwing starfish back into the ocean. I didn’t care much for the starfish element. But…no problem! I frequently design a portion of what I’m after using AI, or using my own photography, and bring it into Photoshop where I create the final image I want.

For those who don’t know, the Starfish Story is — well at least to me, it is — about never giving up. It’s about fighting even in the face of unwinnable odds. Here’s the story, as it appears on my laser-engraved charcuterie boards:

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it back into the ocean.

Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”

The boy replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.

“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”

After listening politely, the boy bend down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then smiling at the man, he said… “I made a different for that one.”

As I mentioned, the original design AI came up with didn’t have quite the starfish I wanted. So I created just a starfish. I had to go through a few iterations to get what I wanted. But, finally!

The AI image was square. When I tried to extend it in AI, it kept adding other children. I just wanted the single boy. So I took it into Photoshop, and extended the beach and ocean there.

I hope you like it! I hope even more that you’ll buy it!
