Hector Perez is an American artist. He decided to design his own concept of hand illustrated playing card deck devoted to early Mesoamerican civilization (the complex of indigenous cultures that developed in parts of Mexico and Central America prior to Spanish exploration and conquest in the 16th century). Courts and Jokers are inspired by appropriate ancient gods and goddesses. These playing cards have a little bit unusual faces (even for one way cards), but they keep the classic Anglo-French playing card hierarchy. Each god and goddess is identified by colour, and by ear jewelry that relates to each of the suits. The number cards are identified by the number of rings as well as the suits.
Unfortunately, the colourful lines with the names of cards make this deck as unusual as unpractical. Playing card collectors… and especially playing card players know that any colourful part (including black) of playing card faces having white or light background marks each card when it touches any edge of the card and isn’t equally repeated in all cards. But some fading effect can make these cards more practical and save their originality quite nicely. Also it is strange that number cards don’t have their names in contrast to the courts and aces.

A Polish artist, Felix-leg (nickname), designed the Two of Hearts devoted to dragons. The result has some connection with semi-transformation motives. Love is common for all creatures… even for mythical ones.

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 🙂

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.
