Pirate Artist Michael Noles, designer of the Blackbeard's Booty Rum labels & this years’ poster designer for The Beaufort Pirate Invasion, is a Ringling School of Art graduate located in Sarasota Fl. There he received his BA in fine art & then continued his schooling at the University of Gainesville where he received his MA.

Michael Noles has worked as a designer & consultant in the theme park industry for many decades, and as to date has held a Sr. Art director & designer consultant contract with Walt Disney World, Orlando for 34yrs. His partial client list includes Walt Disney-Florida-France, Universal Studio's, Orlando, Ringling Clown College-Japan, Six Flags over Georgia & Macy's- New York.

Michael's personal works of art have shown & sold around the world. Disney commissioned him to create a bronze Ring Master Mickey that was presented to King Renier of Monaco. His "High Sea's Collection" has hung at the Custom's House Museum, Key West, Fl. Historical Museum, Orlando, Fl. Mel Fisher Museum, Key West. & the Old Port Exchange, Portland, Maine.

For the last three years, Michael has had the privilege of being hosted by the Maritime Museum along with their wonderful staff in Beaufort. "It was my honor to be asked by Capt. Sinbad & the festival board to design this year’s poster Boarder's Away"! I don't always work in color, as those of you who have collected my personal prints over the years know, it was a great deal of fun to do. I will be showing & selling my "High Sea's collection during the festival inside the Maritime Museum again this year, I do hope you will drop by take a look & say Ahoy!
