Original Character Artwork


A genuine framed page from Matt’s character development sketch book. These are the original pages where the characters first came to life. If you are interested in a page, please get in contact with us on ahoy@piratesofpenryn.com to see all the available artwork and choose your favourite. This one is Cait’s favourite, it has pride of place on her desk. You will have to fight her for it. Literaly.


There are three characters per A6 page. Some made it to the final crew, some were made to walk the plank or marooned upon an island to be recovered at a later date, some have since had their names changed, some have since been re-gendered, some have since been digitally re-mashed in various ways. But these are the originals as they flowed from Matt’s pirate-addled mind.

They were first drawn in pencil before being inked by hand and then scanned and coloured by computer. They are lovely.
