Henry & the Crazed Chicken Pirates

The long-awaited sequel to Henry and the Buccaneer Bunnies will hit bookstores in August.  Carolyn outdid herself with a manuscript that’s just as fun as Henry’s first adventure.

Naturally, since I’m a pirate nut, I created some character designs for the chicken pirate crew spoofing real pirates which Brethren o’ the Coast afficionadoes will recognize—

The dread Black Yolk!

Stede Bonnet and Edward England are actual pirate’s names.  Black Joke was Benito de Soto’s ship.  The fat captain is a take on Laird Cregar who played Captain Henry Morgan in The Black Swan.

If the portrait is anything to go by, Cregar is the spittin’ image of Morgan.
