The Innovative Pirate
I received a Bachelor's degree from Florida International University and enlisted in the Air Force shortly after. After my contract was up, I decided I wanted to do something where I could spend more time at home, so that desire along with my passions in illustrations, math, and computers led me to Illustrator and digital illustrations.I decided to put up an Etsy shop and start selling illustrations online. Currently I work with my wife who is a graphic designer, as well as run my shop. I hope to expand soon, so keep checking back!

Frequently asked questions
Is credit required for commercial use?
No, credit is not required, but appreciated!
How are files delivered?
Files will be downloadable once payment has processed through Etsy. Most files are in .ZIP folders.
How do I open a ZIP folder/ I can't open my orders.
If your computer does not automatically open a .ZIP folder then you can download free software online (such as 7zip) to open them. You can also contact me and I can send the files to your email individually.
Do you accept returns or cancellations?
Due to the nature of digital files, I do not accept returns once the file has been downloaded. If the listing was purchased by mistake and the file has NOT been downloaded then I will happily cancel the order. Please be aware that once cancellations are made files are no longer available for download.
What is the scope of commercial use?
Please look below in the FAQ for more specific categories.
You can use all items for personal or small business commercial use. You can not resell the image itself or in slightly altered packs such as icons with just the clipart, added to other clipart packs, or digital paper packs. You can't use items for large scale factory operations. You CAN use the items for physical, digital, or instant download items as long as the individual clipart does not make up most of the design. Small commercial use means you can use the items as long as production does not exceed 1,000 units. If you need to use the clipart for anything beyond the scope of my policies, please feel free to contact me.
