Sarto Sunday: Drake Coat of Arms

Speaking of Uncharted, here's a T-shirt featuring a re-imagined coat of arms for the adventuring Drakes

Get it here.

FYI - looks like it was based on old Francis's actual coat of arms, complete with latin motto.

Image source and more info here.

Note the identical image on the crest and the replacements of the helmet with a skull (archaeological or violent?) and of the ship with an airplane.  Very subtle and clever work.  Next time someone infers that gamers are illiterate button-mashing dorks, remember this little gem of design.

  1. I agree in principle, although I'm still probably a button mashing dork.
