Heading to Tampa for Gasparilla and thought some pirate design inspiration might be warranted. In case you are unfamiliar with Gasparilla, like I was, it’s based on the legendary pirate, Jose Gaspar, “last of the Bucaneers.” Legend has it that he terrorized the coastal waters of West Florida during the late 18th and early 19th century. He was originally in the Royal Spanish Navy until seizing command of a Spanish sloop-of-war where he with his fellow mutineers set sail for the Florida straits. More to follow next week! Happy (early) weekend!
