Here is a quick sketch I did recently of a pirate and his “catch.” It’s meant to be painted as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, so I need to hurry up and get it done!
The little creature on his shoulder is supposed to be an otter, in reference to our visit with the cutest little Asian Short-clawed otter named Maria. She was blind, but so active and chatty (who knew otters were chatty?) and it was an amazing experience to have her crawl all over us and eat mealworms out of our hands. Chris even got some otter kisses. I reckon it’s because of his beard, and I’m still a little bit jealous.
