Maynard's Bowsprit Ornament

Okay, I usually put somewhere in the blog "I'm happy with how this one turned out," because I so seldom actually AM. I'm a huge critic of my work, as most of you know already. Today, though... maybe it's the spirit of the holiday. Maybe I've reached a new artistic plateau. Maybe I'm an arrogant pirate at heart. I don't know.

I freakin' LOVE this one.

I wanted to post some older pirate sketches I'd done in the past, but they were too light to scan properly, so I drew this at work. Ol' Edward Teach, BLACKBEARD himself. Well, most of him anyway; I only drew his head. Which I didn't remember until later is terribly fitting, seein' as that was all Maynard left of the salty sea dog & terror of the high seas. So don't let the flaming wicks tied into his beard, his wild eyes, or his fancy hat scare ye'; click the thumbnail for a larger view.

Do you feel that? That uncomfortable feeling? Like someone is there... in the dark...

That's the feeling of the eyes of DEATH watching you. Get used to it. The Ninja will be there always. Waiting.

And someday, you will feel something just a little different. And then you won't feel anything at all.

Damn pirates...
