DeviantART: The Ace of Clubs by Judyta Anna Murawska

This is a quick drawing from a Polish artist, Judyta Anna Murawska (Fukari). She says that the artwork was “inspired” by boring classes 🙂 This playing card artwork is the one way Ace of Clubs. Taking into account that some “queen of stars” is featured in the card, indices of the Queen of Clubs could be more natural for it. But this is author’s vision. She sees the Ace of Clubs as a dreaming lady – a big admirer of piercing.

Bēhance: The Queen of Hearts by Kerri-Jane Mitchell

Kerri-Jane Mitchell, an artist from Cape Town (South Africa), designed the Queen of Hearts as some symbiosis of two epochs in the life of this lady. Different ages, different moods – different dresses, different friends 🙂

Playing Card Art: Playing Cards by Molly Maloney

Molly Maloney, an Ameriacan artist, has some stories in her mind which provoke her to design playing cards. Someday she plans to complete a full deck of playing cards devoted to the several stories. Each suit will tell a separate story. Court cards will be devoted to main characters of appropriate stories. Each number card should be a part of the respective story. Molly named only the story for Diamonds, the story of Kaguya Hime. I guess the full set will force the artist to name all stories.

Kaguya Hime (Princess Kaguya), also known as Taketori Monogatari (The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter), is a 10th-century Japanese folktale. It tells the story about the life of a mysterious girl called Kaguya-hime, who was discovered as a baby inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant.

DeviantART: Joker by Karen and Sara (TheUrbanTeam)

Two artists from Mexico, Karen & Sara (TheUrbanTeam), designed this Joker. Their inspiration from anime seems obvious. Young ladies made him quite cocky. It’s interesting what he has in his right hand. Anyway, if you even have two aces, don’t hold cards in such way playing any game with people – they can lose their interest to cards and knead their muscles.

Playing Card Art: Playing Cards by David Kapah

An Israeli artist, David Kapah, designed this set of playing card artworks devoted to fantasy worlds. Some demons, servants of the Death, ghosts, and cursed warriors were prisoned in one deck of playing cards. A sinister company, but interesting art. Number cards are the worst part of this pack. The back design could be also better. But aces are really stylish.

Bēhance: Mesoamerican Playing Cards by Hector Perez

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.

DeviantART: Playing Cards by Felix-leg

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.
