Pirates and Pokemon

  • Post published:September 25, 2020

Not my most productive week, but there are three pics in the Misc Fan Art gallery.

I did two pics for Talk Like A Pirate Day, which was on Saturday… The first one was of Captain Sabertooth, the star of the biggest kids’ franchises in Norway (if you’re curious, you can read the TV Tropes page here; I’ve contributed to it quite a bit and even made the Character page!). The joke I was trying to make was that to a Norwegian, talking like a pirate didn’t mean going “Yarrr” and doing a bad West County type accent, it would probably mean spouting Captain Sabertooth’s catchphrases…

Yeah, nobody else thought that was funny either. So, rather because I’d just watched the finale of Milo Murphy’s Law, I did a follow-up drawing where I declared the day after Talk Like A Pirate Day to be “Talk Like Dr Doofenschmirtz Day.” I think more people GOT that joke, but they didn’t really seem all that amused…

Oh well, they can’t all be winners.

Finally, on an early Friday morning, I drew a random Mew. Because Pokemon are just easy to draw.
