Check it, I whipped up some sweet coats of arms last night. First I went with the basic fleu-de-lis design with, of course, that turtle from the “Can You Draw” ads that used to be in the back of Parade Magazine.

Frankly that felt a little fancy so I went back to the basic design. Only with a little something extra.

Nailed it.
