DeviantART: Playing cards by Mike Wilcox

An American artist, Mike Wilcox (Mi-Wi), had his own deck of playing cards in mind creating these playing card artworks. He wanted to design a deck with four thematic suits. Three of them should be Robots, Pirates, Ninjas. Mike didn’t decide about the fourth suits. The plan was to design one card per day. But I think he has  lost his interest in the project.

Nevertheless, he created several interesting playing card artworks. I think robots are better than ninjas. The full deck of robots could be a really nice present to playing card collectors. These playing cards have also custom suits which can be unusual for some collectors.
