Bēhance: “Sherlock Holmes: Scarlet” Playing Cards by Abby Diamond

30 Nov

Playing cards designed (a project) by the American artist, Abby Diamond. They are dedicated to A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This is his first detective mystery involving Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr John Watson as main characters. Each card design was hand-drawn then colored in Photoshop.
