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.

Upcoming: Gary Baseman “The Door is Always Open” Playing Cards

Gary Baseman is a leader within an international cultural movement that includes both mainstream and underground art. After a career as a top commercial illustrator, creator of Disney’s Teacher’s Pet animated show, and artist for the Cranium board game, he felt he should not be “limited to one world, whether the gallery world, editorial world, or art toy world.” He has now embraced them all with success.

In March 2013, the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles will install a major career retrospective, My Door Is Always Open, that will run for six months. Dark Horse is celebrating with a new range of merchandise, all selected and approved by Gary Baseman.

The fun and zany artwork from his “The Door is Always Open” exhibition is featured on these colorful Gary Baseman The Door is Always Open Playing Cards.

Release Date: April 17, 2013. Pre-order.
