What a cute sketch and very timely with Talk Like a Pirate Day!My pirate joke...Q. Why didn't the pirate get hungry on the desert island? A. Because of all the sand which is there! Har-dee-har!
What a pair! I love the first mate - what a character.
Always such warm and wonderful characters you create, Priscilla! These 2 are such a great pair.
You've obviously had a lot of fun with these delightful illustrations!Here's my pirate joke:'Twas a dark and stormy night and the pirates were huddled in their cave when one of them spoke up and said, 'Cap'n Jake, spin us a yarn!' And so Cap'n Jake began,'Twas a dark and stormy night and the pirates...' Always made my literacy pupils laugh their socks off (once I'd explained what 'spin us a yarn' meant!)
There's no better first mate than a dog. Mine is sitting right here- tho the pirate ship gets pretty hairy. So cute- these two!
I really like the obvious bond between these two mates. :)
