All Pirate Flag Files and Art

Today I share with you the essential pirate flag asset files. As described in this week’s 6-day video blog (which began with “Sketching the Pirate Flag” and continues until Friday, October 29), the flag art measures five feet wide by three feet tall. It’s an Illustrator file, so every line is razor smooth, as if drawn with pen and ink. And because Illustrator saves PDF-compatible files, you can open it in the free Adobe Reader utility. Even better, you have my permission to modify the file and print it as you see fit.

Here’s a picture of me with said flag that was shot this morning.
