Uncharted Drake's Journal replica by PReilly Uncharted Drake's Journal replica by PReilly
Hey all, I thought Id drop by and post up some images of a project I finished last year.
I've been meaning to post it up but just haven't had time lately.

Ive been a fan of the Uncharted game series for some time so I decided to recreate a replica of the journal that Drake uses in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The book took about a month or so to finish and who-knows how many hours to hand draw the illustrations and recreate a high res version of the clippings and cut outs stapled to the pages.

These are just a few sample pages (over 50 pages in total, so I couldn't include them all.)

Hope you enjoy.

This is great, I first saw it on youtube and was directed here from the rpf. Of all the replicas I've seen yours really sets the standard. I've just started my own Uncharted journal replica but from the third game; I saw on YT you were doing the same, wondering how far along with it you are? Would love to see your progress!

I'm just curious, how did you do the print out images? I'm a traditional artist, but I'm trying to recreate a journal for my boyfriend. I have have clue how to find/collect/make the photos and tickets. I was just curious if you had any advice.

Fantastic work, btw. I can old aspire to have mine 1/8th as good as your's.

Im a member of a board called the Replica Prop Forum. There were at least a dozen guys (including myself) doing research on this book.
Many of the printouts had to be custom recreated and some were found online. The pink Kathmandu Metropilitan ticket was found online (it's a real ticket), and the tibetan prayer flag are among the few. But many of the other items had to be recreated.
The coins are actually real coins. Two 10 cent Turkish Kurus, and a Turkish tram token.
Most, if not all, of the pages can be found at a good resolution at the replica prop forum in the paper props section (just do a search).

If you decide to visit the replica prop forum, make sure you use this address - www.thereplicapropforum.com
The old site was called therpf.com but it was hacked a few days ago...Everyone migrated to the new site.
The old site is still up (and looks nearly identical to the new one) and still occupied by hackers, so don't go there.

You'll be able to tell the real site by the ad on the front page that says "help take back therpf.com"...The fake site does not have this.


good luck.
