The Emerald Pirate
Posted 5 years ago and submitted by Pete Underhill | Share link:


The latest addition to my portfolio is The Emerald Pirate. I wanted to give the piece a more alliterative name, but optional words for both ‘pirate’ and ‘green’ provide few opportunities. Maybe I should’ve used a different colour – pink, purple or puce, perhaps?

"It has been a pleasure working with Pete. We were looking for an illustrator for the longest time, and once we discovered his excellent drawings from, we knew he was the one. He was the ultimate professional - efficient, timely, and especially creative. Not only did his illustration far exceed our expectations, but he completed the project much ahead of our timeline. We look forward to working with him again."
