“My final project for my Illustration II class, a concept for a deck of playing cards. My original idea included a circus freak for each number card, but the assignment only allowed for a general theme for all numbers. I hope to revisit the project and complete the rest of them. Completed digitally.” ~ Kate Guthrie

These transformation playing cards*** based on the Circus theme were designed by Frank Robert Schick (December 30, 1924 – June 16, 1988). The artist was born in New York City. He received his training in the Arts at Fort Wayne Art Academy, in the State of Indiana. The deck was published by his wife on his passing on 16 June 1988.
