Piece description from the artist
This piece was inspired by a favorite humor book of mine, "The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists" by Gideon Defoe. It is a whimsical, colorful take on the beloved and feared Pirate Captain of the book and various characters throughout, including Bobo the man-panzee. This piece is perfect for anyone who loves pirates, beards, humor, or the sea. A must for anyone with a nautical art collection.
