Original illustration, graphic and fine art from Annapolis, Maryland, USA.
I am a half-Scottish illustrator and graphic artist living in Maryland, USA with a strong love of anything inked: people, paper, etc.
The Contrary Captain (we pronounce contrary like, "Mary, Mary, Quite..." not like, "On the...") was created to share my (and some of my family's) love of art and creating with the world. (And I'm allowed to pronounce Contrary that way since my mum's from the UK. It's not weird.)
We work with several local vendors and create a variety of items that aren't yet shown in the store, so don't hesitate to let us know if you have any ideas for custom pieces. We're always up for something new!
