People of all ages are intrigued by pirates.  I don’t know whether this is because of their rogue nature, their free spirited adventures on the high seas or their association with hidden treasure.   Halifax is an area well known for its pirate tales.  Who knows what chests of gold remain hidden to this day on some of our harbour islands?

Here are two drawings of pirates inspired by Johnny Depp’s characterization of Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  The one above was created with Tuscan Red charcoal pencil while the one at bottom was rendered with graphite.
