Several playing cards designed by Sydney James are dedicated to different musicians and singers.
“I started this series because I wanted to pay true homage to the musicians that have inspired movements, modified cultures and made music history. “Once I started the paintings, the concept of the combination of playing card designs with the likeness of each artist made more sense. The musicians I chose to paint have already been deemed icons. I just married those icons with the existing iconography of the modern day playing card.” ~ © 2007 Sydney James
