Bēhance: “Indianie” (Indian) Playing Cards by Katarzyna Fus

Hardly these playing cards can be practical in their current form, but I couldn’t omit them. Created by a Polish artist, Katarzyna Fus, these are really cute pieces of art devoted to Indian culture. I really like her style for this prototype deck. Court cards represent people. Totem (a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serve as an emblem of a group of people) is in the aces. Number cards and the back design contain imitation of some petroglyphs (arrows and horses). Unfortunately, all number cards have only different appropriate quantity of arrows in their pictures.

Playing cards haven’t been produced. I think they will become more functional with white frameworks around the coloured pictures. Letters and numbers of cards can be also moved outside the pictures. Horses are better to use for number cards instead of backs. Tomahawks (a type of axe from North America) and calumets (a ceremonial smoking pipe used by some indigenous American nations) can vary pictures of number cards of different suits. Different totems for aces will be also nice.

DeviantART: Playing Cards by Ingrid Tan

This royal pair, the King of Diamonds and the Queen of Diamonds, was designed by a Philippine artist, Ingrid Tan (IngridTan). The queen seems to be quite happy. Maybe it’s because she is a pretty girl like Ingrid. The king is definitely upset. Maybe because of the queen’s endless shopping… maybe because of the indices inside the frame… or maybe because he has cut off his own feet. Who knows?

DeviantART: Pin-Up Playing Cards by Jeff Chapman

These are Pin-Up playing card Queens created by an American artist, Jeff Chapman (Jeffach). He is a big admirer of women proceeding from his artworks. The queens happened to be vivid with substantial tattoos. Bathroom is quite intimate place to meet them. But don’t be sure that you have been able to catch these ladies unawares 🙂 … and the Queen of Diamonds is such a queen of diamonds – she doesn’t part with her diamonds even in her shower.
