Yo Ho Ho

Pirate Map

Herein is my latest Photoshop project... a pirates map, in tribute to all things piratey. Yo-Ho-Ho!

Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by the romanticized fictional pirate. This interest can be dated back to when I first saw the movies The Goonies and The Princess Bride. Then in my early teens one of my favourite computer games happened to be Monkey Island, a very silly and hilarious pirate romp. Then of course there were the movies Cutthroat Island and Pirates of the Caribbean continually adding fuel to my lust for all things piratey (in a completely fantastical sense).
