Very nice design and color, great lettering too.

This skull pattern is really awesome.

Jeffrey, thank you, I was concerned about how this would look at first but I was pleasantly surprised by the end. Also, an ode to perhaps my favorite pirate of all time.

Thank you Hannah. The acrylic paint went relatively quickly but finishing all those eyes and mouths, even as rough as they look, took a ghastly amount of time. Well worth the effort though, I think. I wish I could make this into wallpaper for my room.

This reminds me of that cartoon 'Maus'.

Given my lifetime of reading every comic and graphic novel I could find, that is probably yet another influence Scott.
