A Wicked History: Peter de Sève as Sir Francis Drake

Today in the Mark Summers series of generally behind-the-scenes illustrators who willingly morphed themselves into wicked(ly attractive) cover models, we bring you Peter de Sève.

Peter plays Elizabethan Pirate Sir Francis Drake (Who, like Peter, was known to the Spanish as "El Draque" or "The Dragon").

Because of this unfortunate pet name, I was too scared to call Peter to see if he had the original sketch. And apparently Mark Summers chucked that sucker first chance he got. Sorry folks. But the finish is pretty mischievous, no?
