To behold his twisty tresses, one might suspect that legendary pirate Captain Johnny Locks does hold some deeply-felt spiritual convictions after all. Or that he has ethnic pride. Perhaps he is making a political statement. Maybe he’s a Bob Marley fan.

Nope, he’s just too busy plundering, pillaging and guzzling rum for personal grooming. Oh, in his youth he took pains to freshen up for the ladies. Then he discovered that his kind of lady doesn’t seem to care if/whether he bathes or washes his hair. So he has been allowing his locks to bifurcate and coalesce on their own for years now -- grooming by neglect.

Legend says that after he dies, his dreadlocks will continue to grow. Eww. My personal theory is that he’s sporting a rug – ever notice how he always has a bandana, tricorn hat, or both on his noggin? Hmm?

This hand painted indoor-outdoor pillow measures 20”x20” and is about 5” thick at the center. Will not fade, mildew, sag or look worn for the first ten years of use! But is eminently suited for home interiors as well. Polyester fiberfill insert removes for laundering if needed and the cover cleans up easily with a bit of cool water, a hosedown or gentle laundering; air dry.

Last photo shows the Florida version, painted on beautiful aqua fabric. Convo artist for other background fabric color options.

Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted on an island north of Seattle. Looks good with other nautical pillows from this shop. Yar!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high shipping costs, customers outside of North America will receive COVERS ONLY.
