Always had a thing for pirates.  Read quite a bit on the history of the Brethren of the Coast, as well as the action in the Indian Ocean.  Need to find more info on Asian pirates, especially those of China.  And ye can lay to that, mate!

Top art man! Love it

I was just coming here to thank you sincerely for the honor of a watch, but thanks to you I had another very pleasant surprise.  You had a bunch of favs from Dongho Kang! 

I absolutely love his work particularly "Vagabond" but I didn't even know he was on DA.  I have just been watching him on ArtStation.  But I came her and there it was, along with my other three top favs of his staring me right in the face. 

I feel like I got triple blessing tonight thanks to you, a note from you, a watch (I am still geeking out about that) and the heads up about kang's DA.  I guess it pays to have a pirate artist as a friend.
Thank you by KmyGraphic

Hi Bob,
Just stumbled upon your portfolio chasing a Pinterest link and I am very impressed! I love your work. I’m an aficionado of pirate-themed work, and your style is a perfect blend of realism with fantasy. I hope I’m in a position to commission some of your work in the next few years.
