This is the new illustration I did the for the new poster, for the new upcoming exhibition "Who is Pirate?" at Swedish National Maritime Museum, which opens December 5, 2009. I also made 4 additional illustrations that are part of the actual exhibition, in large format. 2,5 x 1 as well as 3 x 3,5 meters in size. It was a fun work to do. I made this illustrations by first sketching in my sketchpad, and later scan the rough skecthes and use my Wacom Intuos pen tablet and draw & painted using Corel Photo-Paint X4, part of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4.
Quotes from the museum's web page "Who is a pirate? It is the name of a new exhibition coming the 5 December at the National Maritime Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. Piracy occurs in specific geographical, political and social conditions. It history shows. The Swedish Vitalie Brothers who put fear in 1300 -- century sailors in the Baltic Sea is an example - as well as today's pirates in Gulf of Aden off Somalia. "
