Those Fun-Loving Pirates!

Thanks to Peter Pan, The Pirates of Penzance, The Pirate Movie, Muppet Treasure Island, and The Pirates of the Caribbean ride (among other things), I grew up believing that a pirate was a member of a sea-going performance group. What's with all the singing and dancing? Didn't pirates rob and kill mostly? Our entertainment presents a generally favorable view of the life of a pirate... yo ho.

Shane your character design is beyond incredible! Brilliant overall design and execution! The idea, of course, is hysterical! The crazed look on the captains face is priceless.

Very funny! Villains turned vaudevillians. Maybe life wasn't so bad on sailing the seven seas if they could break into song at any time. I'm waiting for the CD--Music to slit a throat by.

Shane, you are freaking amazing, and awesome. These pirates are hilarious, and could only come from a twisted, fiendishly clever imagination like your own. This drawing makes me want to "Walk the Plank!" Oh, yeah...Arrrrrrrr!!!
