- Guybrush? Guybrush Threepwood?
- The mighty pirate himself!
- Well I have some mighty bad news for you.
- Haha! What's that? We're out of beard conditioner?
- Guybrush, LeChuck is back!
- No, that's impossible! Not again!
- In fact, technically, you're right.
- Glad to hear that!
- He's got a baby.
- Woo... and you're so afraid of a little baby?!?
- This one is different... he's got strange powers... and needles...
- Needles! Hahaha. I've got my faithful sword just there, I can't see how needles could...
- Could what?
- My... my head...
- Your head what?
- It's... Oh no... I... LeChuck... Arrrrrrgh!!!
- Told ya.

Yes, "Monkey Island" were fantastic games, and I enjoyed them immensely when I was a kid. Adventure and humor, such a great cocktail. I wanted to spend some time again with those heroes, so I decided to disguise my little daughter baby Emilie as Guybrush's new opponent, while posing myself as the mighty pirate wannabe! If you've played those games, you probably recognized the cover of the second installment of the series. I used 70 different photos that I mainly shot in my home-studio to create it: various pieces of wood and ropes to create the boat, many costumes pieces, hat, beard, skulls, bones, and of course needles! Assembling everything together took a fair amount of time (around 40 hours altogether) but I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm hopin' ye like it too!
