I've been drawing pirates. It seemed natural to make comics out of them! Maybe someday I will get to some sweet real pirates, like Jean Lafitte or Anne Bonny or etc etc.

But check it out, this is what I was drawing pirates for in the first place:

That's a poster, and a shirt that will be available at Heroes Con in North Carolina, the first weekend of June! I hope to see you there! The image was colored by my ever talented friend Dustin Harbin.

Another thing to bring your attention to: One of my favorite comics, that I have mentioned here before- Sailor Twain- is having a little contest that I think some of my readers may be totally into.

I leave you now with more pirates.
