Pirates Ahoy - Non-Fiction Illustration
Client: Personal work
Illustration based on the famous female pirate Mary Read, she reportedly pirated the Caribbean in the early 18th Century - here she is represented leading a small pirate group ahsore to see what treasures they can be found.
I wanted to produce a pirate ship but still keep the non-fiction element to it so it was based on historical pirates rather than made up. I did want a female lead pirate hence using Mary Read.
