Family Portrait Day

A Pirate’s Portal Family

Twitter changed their layout this past week, which required a redesign of A Pirate’s Portal‘s title image. That gave me the opportunity to play around with some of our pictures from the Pirate spiral to design a new picture from our skyway adventures. I decided to create a new family portrait of our favorite Captains for the Twitter header. I think it came out pretty nice.
