Playing Card Pirate King of Hearts T Shirt

by on March 9, 2011

Nice little mashup of a king and a pirate on a playing card, which is always a nice place to start when building an interesting design. Playing cards are so dang pleasing to the eye with their intricate detail and their social classes.

I dig the dagger in the mouth, as if this finely robed king of hearts is about to hop in the Nile and swim to save a damsel in distress. And, of course, the eye patch is a terrific touch. This is one of those get in the action kings. He ain’t just sittin’ on his thrown throwing out absurd decrees. He’s out on the battlefield, or in this case, he’s doing like guerilla seamanship, attacking other fleets out of nowhere, jumping on board, killing, maiming and taking prisoners. All the while drinking the best liquor his brewmaster can conjure.

This King digs the thrill and adventure. And, you love how it’s all been captured on this Pirate King of Hearts T Shirt.

I like the YL for Young Lovers Label in place of the K. That’s clever.
