Next was the pirate. After The Viceroy and the cop, I wasn't sure about the next persona, though I did want a long haired version. I was doing a google search of Nicolas Cage images and movie posters and saw the poster for Zandalee (a movie I'm not familiar with). I immediately thought a pirate would be the next piece I'd create.
The name "The Knave Nic Brig" was a mixture of various searches, while talking with my roommate. I tried going to pirate name generator websites for inspiration. Many of the names had descriptions pegged on like " so-n-so the terrible," or "one-eyed so-n-so." I liked the sound of "The Knave" and Brig is another word for "a place (as on a ship) for temporary confinement...." Thank you Mariam-Webster. So Brig was a good sea-worthy alternative name for Cage, thus The Knave Nic Brig was created.
