‘Benito’ pillaged Spanish galleons and allegedly, while trying to elude the authorities, buried most of his treasure in Queenscliff Victoria  … and the rest later in the Franklin River, before disappearing.

Alan will be exhibiting his works, Fish Friends and a Few Loose Ends at Gatakers Artspace in Maryborough from March 4 – 29.

This story was written and illustrated by Alan and is held at Gatakers Artspace, as the venue is a major government initiative to encourage and promote local artists.
