Avast! Ye Bilge Rats!

I quickly sketched this up in my Moleskine notebook while waiting for another watercolor piece to dry.
Like Wes, I love to draw pirates!

  2. The size of the hat, the parrots nose, the size of the mermaid... Totally unique and awesome.

  3. This is a great piece. As I was looking at it, I noticed how you got this triangle thing going between the pirates face, the parrot and the mermaid. Keeps the eye moving around, the shape and the colors. Cool! And then the knife cleverly points to your name. Something Freudian there? Am I over-analyzing? Why is the pirate's RIGHT nostril pierced?

    This is the first pirate I've ever seen with a hook hand that looks like he actually did lose his hand.

    The pirate's eyes are perfect. I like that you left them white.
