Pirate Mike Celebrates Talk Like A Pirate Day!

I like doing a strip to celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day (or “ITLAPD” as it is comically referred to acronymically). I’m particularly happy here about the motion in the first panel. Anytime I can get motion that I am happy with, I’m really ecstatic. I also like the blanket curse from the book. There are definitely family favorites in everything, so why not favorite pirate curses? It also gives me the chance to show some father-son love. Mike’s delight in his son’s joy makes me happy. I loved drawing that picture. I also like the idea that they exchange gifts on that day.
