Thoughts on Today’s Paper Doll
My favorite book as a child was Treasure Island. I’ve read it many many times now and I love it more each time. I even listened to it on audio while driving between states during my move. The characters are incredible and every-time I read it, I notice something new I didn’t see before.

Through Treasure Island, I fell in love with super old-school adventure novels. By high school, I had read Robinson Crusoe, Three Musketeers, Count of Monte Cristo and Kidnapped. My first love though remains Treasure Island.

Three Musketeers is a close second.

So, I like to draw pirate outfits. I blame is enjoyment on my love of Treasure Island. I suppose I could blame it on something else, I don’t know what I would point to.

Inspiration for Today’s Paper Doll
Pirates, of course. Not real pirates (who I expect were rather smelly and dirty), but fantasy pirates who are much more fun and less likely to have scurvy.

By the way, I’m doing March Meet the Maker on Instagram (mostly, though I am also posting to Facebook when it makes sense) and if you want to follow along, you can follow me on Instagram.

My patrons got a Pirate set on Monday and that set does mix and match with this set. What more paper dolls? Then come join up on Patreon.

What were your favorite books as a kid? Did you love pirate stories or something else? I was a pirates and fairy tale fan. Not shocking, I know.

  1. Looks great in color too! For books i really loved fantasy. Chronicles of Narnia and the Prydain chronicles (most famous is the 3rd book the black cauldron because of disney) were my favorites. My fav book of all time though was The Little Princess. The book is amazing I’ve read it at least 14 times over my lifetime and it’s always relevant and powerful. I lament all the time that none of the many movies based on it have the proper ending which in the book is the entire moral of the story and important ending. They always just be like, oh her dad’s alive but has amnesia gah… completely negating the themes of redemption and healing at the end of the book.

    1. I read some of the The Chronicles of Narnia as a kid. I never read the whole series until I was an adult and I must confess… everyone dying in a train crash was a bit depressing.
