Welcome to day four of the Queens of the Sea series, part of the Random Magic Pirates book tour! Here is the mini-bio for today’s pirate, provided again by Lyrika:

Anne Bonny: The Southern Spitfire

The illegitimate daughter of an Irish lawyer, who left Ireland for the colony of South Carolina (at the time, there was no United States of America, the settlements were all colonies of the British Empire) and became a merchant.

She married a small-time pirate but ran away with Jack ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham after they met on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas, a pirate lair of the time.

A comrade of pirate Mary Read, Anne Bonny was captured along with Mary Read and Jack Rackham in a pirate hunter raid but mysteriously vanished from historical records after being imprisoned, although Mary died in jail and Jack was executed.

You can read more about Anne Bonny at The Epic Rat on May 17th, as part of the Queens of the Sea series. (I’ll update the link after it’s been posted.)

Now, with Anne Bonny, one of the most famous female pirates, the outfits are getting a little more traditionally pirate-looking… You will have to imagine her carrying pistols, though, that’s far out of my area of expertise! This whole series is a little out of my area of expertise, really — I’ve drawn more pants this month than I probably did all last year — but I’m enjoying it, and I hope you are too!

Don’t forget to enter my contests! They’re open until the end of the tour. Click here for the chance to win an original drawing, for those of you who can give me an address if you win, and click here for the chance to design a pirate outfit, open to everyone!

Check out the tour schedule here! And for more information about Random Magic, here’s the trailer for the book.

Hm, let’s have a poll, I haven’t done one for a while… How about a nice long one?

  1. Yay, I’ve been waiting for this all day! XD I was super excited that you did Anne Bonny. I have a special notebook that I keep pirate stuff in and I’ve been pasting these in along with the bios.

  2. I’ve always wanted a frock coat (purple, with silver trim) and a smart mouthed parrot, so guess which one I voted on? Love the pirates Liana!

  3. Yay Anne Bonney! She’s one of my favrotie pirates! I’m definately printing this one out. Can we have an outfit for Mary Read so Ivy and Grace can be pirates together?

  4. ooo, i like the mystery of Anne’s demise. i like to think she escaped and lived leisurely on a tropical island. the poll was fun! i fancy chasing wild rumors ;-D

  5. The other night i was watching a show about pirates on the History Channel. It included Anne Bonny, Mary Read, Jack “Calico Jack” Rackham, Blackbeard and a couple others is was cool.

  6. Thanks for the shout-out :)

    I am glad this Anne is more covered than some other renditions of her! Your outfit looks quite spiffy – I am sure she will approve!

  7. I really appreciate the elven designs :) so many
    clothes today are scandalous and unflattering but your dresses are very nice (although I only saw a couple) and, hope you don’t mind but, I am going to try and mimic one of them- using a pattern foundation I discovered in my attic- for holloween!
