Bēhance: Playing Cards by Monica Lee

Monica Lee, an American artist, designed this set of Spades playing card artworks as her class work in 2013. The project worked with watercolor and gouache on panel. 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.

Playing Card Art: Semi-Transformation Playing Cards by Patrik Svensson

Patrik Svensson is an illustrator working with clients worldwide from his studio in Gothenburg, Sweden. He has created artworks for Starbucks, IKEA, Sony Music, etc. These playing card artworks are his set of semi-transformation courts for a deck of playing cards. I decided to omit the King of Hearts, Casanova, because I don’t think that a pornographic element is nice for this set.

Playing Card Art: Playing Cards by Siobhán Gallagher

Siobhán Gallagher is a Canadian artist. She graduated with a BDes from NSCAD University in 2012. Now Siobhán does graphic design work for Penguin Group USA (readers of books printed by Philomel Books can be familiar with her illustrations), Farrar, Straus and Giroux, McDonald’s, Ronald McDonald House Atlantic,etc.

These bright positive playing cards were designed by Siobhán. The illustrator of books for kids and teens can be seen in these artworks. The playing cards are a little bit crazy, but what a nice work with colours and geometrical forms. Here you have everyday habits and hobbies of people represented through original “visual patchworks*”.

The deck hasn’t been produced commercially. She printed a few copies and then cut them down and packaged them herself as part of an illustration project. But Siobhán is always available to hear from interested people about potential cooperation.

Of course, The Queen of Hearts, the Queen of Diamonds and the Jack of Spades can find more symmetric clothes. And the Jack of Clubs can get his right hand.
