A Piratical Preoccupation

One of Arty’s interests at the moment is pirates. No doubt as a result of a small set of pirate characters bought at the toy shop while visiting his grandparents in Camperdown. They have sparked off a series of illustrations (only a couple of which are pictured here) and three songs. Arty has begun to add a melody to one of the songs and sings along to it on the piano. Perhaps we will be able to post a recording at some stage.
