CIRCUS Greetings Playing Cards by Dan Adams

This playful, colourful and rather wonderful series of cards designed by Dan Adams are shaped like playing cards and they feature a bunch of rather funny and talented characters: there is an elephant, a seal, a dog, a monkey and a lion. And there is also something more sweet and lovable in the winning ace of hearts!

The full series of designs is now available at twenty21 (these are only greeting cards!)

Playing Card Art: Circus Freaks Playing Cards by Kate Guthrie

My final project for my Illustration II class, a concept for a deck of playing cards. My original idea included a circus freak for each number card, but the assignment only allowed for a general theme for all numbers. I hope to revisit the project and complete the rest of them. Completed digitally.” ~ Kate Guthrie
