Playing Card Art: Joker by Timothy John Shumate

An American artist, Timothy John Shumate, is a big fun of cartoons and comics. He uses his talent to create original tattoo artworks devoted to different well-known characters from Disney, DC, and other universes. Here is a Wild Card (Joker) made in accordance with his original vision. The artwork was created for C2EC (Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo).

Also you can see several more examples of his art (here and on his site). The combination of all his artworks can be a nice deck of playing cards 🙂

Bēhance: Dragon Playing Cards by Pedro Felipe Giraldo Mejia

Pedro Felipe Giraldo Mejia is a Colombian artist. He decided to create playing card artworks devoted to different incarnations of dragons. These cards look like artworks affected by different cultures because they have different stylistics. Dragons are symbolic not only in Eastern mythology. Quite often mythographers mark out two main cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, and the Eastern dragon. The first one comes from European folk traditions based on Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies. The second one is a composite creature combining different dragons from East Asia countries (Chinese dragon, Japanese dragon, and other dragons from appropriate countries which have their own peculiarities). So, the artworks look like a collection of both “draconian” cultural traditions.

DeviantART: Playing Cards by Anna Podedworna

These playing card artworks were created by a Polish artist, Anna Podedworna (akreon). The cards are interesting combinations of paintings and collages. So many intricate details have been incorporated into pips and bodies of court cards. Unfortunately, there are only three court cards… at this moment.

Fans of RPG games that are driving now the witcher Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt) along the vast expanses of Kaer Morhen, No Man’s Land, Skellige, and White Orchard should also know that Anna is a concept artist at CD Projekt RED (Poland).

She decided to turn shape of playing card suit into the imaginary vegetation of garden, where the Jack should be a gardener, the Queen should be a madam, and the King should be a child living in the house of the garden.

The final design is a set of pleasant semi-transformation playing cards.

Kickstarter Digest #1: New Playing Card Projects Waiting for Your Support

PlayingCardCollector.NET regularly tries to cover the most interesting playing card projects (choices are always subjective) on Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms. Unfortunately, alternative crowdfunding platforms don’t involve a lot of playing card projects, so Kickstarter remains some type of mecca for independent playing card producers.

Traditionally the most interesting playing card projects are demonstrated on the “CROWDFUNDING DECKS” page and have their short introduction on the active pages devoted to different crowdfunding platforms. For active Kickstarter projects this is the “Kickstarter Projects” page.

Unfortunately, any changes on the above mentioned pages can’t be automatically reported unlike new posts on PlayingCardCollector.NET. So, only readers who regularly check appropriate pages can find out about new featured Kickstarter playing card projects before a separate post devoted to such project. Regular readers of PlayingCardCollector.NET know that the site tries to propose them extended interesting articles about appropriate playing card projects. It’s clear that such articles demand time and can’t be always posted at the start of each specific playing card project on Kickstarter.

This little collision has been disturbing PlayingCardCollector.NET for some time. The site always thinks about its usability, and tries to provide its readers, its main fortune, with reasonable comfort. That’s why a new category has been invented – “Kickstarter Digest”. This sort of posts should promptly cover all new Kickstarter playing card projects featured on PlayingCardCollector.NET. They will name the projects featured on the “Kickstarter Projects” page.  It doesn’t abolish extended materials 🙂

So, look below at these new projects and check the “Kickstarter Projects” page.
