Artist's Description

Pirates Versus Ninjas – where it all began.

I was wondering if this reference was too obscure, but then my brother walked past and exclaimed, “Cool! Ninja paramecium!” and I knew my work was done.

P.S. I spent an hour drawing the gun that would be thrust through the pirate’s belt.

Just when I had proudly adjusted it into place, a helpful passer-by remarked that the gun I had drawn was actually a derringer and not suited to the era* (a derringer is more of a Wild West gun).

After I had finished disposing of his body, I then spent another hour drawing an old-fashioned pistol, which ended up in the final picture.

See here for the difference.

* Surprisingly, he had no problem with the concept of unicellular organisms wearing clothes.

Which side would YOU be on? Pirate, or ninja?


Please note that on dark t-shirts, the design will have a grittier, more reflective appearance, due to the greater amounts of ink used. If you are looking for a smoother effect, please choose a pale-coloured shirt.

And of course, if you are not happy with the print quality, please contact RedBubble as soon as possible with a photograph of the print so that your issue can be resolved.

Thank you for supporting an independent Australian artist!
