Pirates of Orange County

While waiting for takeoff on a California tarmac this week, I found myself surrounded by a family that had just visited Disneyland. Their pirate merchandise inspired me to draw this cartoon.

Everyone was too distracted to listen to my Disney Magazine cockroach story… Oh, well.
