Sunny Sunday afternoon on an unmapped island with a single port small town that only one ship calls home. The heat borders comfortable and muggy, as the sea's mist rolls through town and gives the air that taste, smell of salt. It's a calm, quiet town, for the most part; and were it not for the ship in the harbor it would not have gotten as far as it had.
The towns people thank The Johnny Blue, a ship painted much like it's name implies, and her crew for all the resources they share... regardless of how legal they were obtained.
Out of the thousands of ships that sail Ocean Atlantica, The Johnny Blue is not very well known. She was a pirate ship pirated by an odd crew, so they say, but not a ship that really needs to be feared. Well, unless your ship holds Dominica produce.

It's always a woman with these things. Romance, and shit like that. I don't do those things, though... not in public, not typically, not for everyone to see me. It's secret and kept very close for only a select few. I suppose that makes you one of those few, but only in word... you'll probably never see such things f
I am really amazed that I have such a vast collection of talented deviants who watch my artwork. Thank you again to all of my watchers, and for those who will support my work in the future!
