Kickstarter Digest #3: New Playing Card Projects Waiting for Your Support

New playing card projects are popping up on Kickstarter regularly. RJ Tomlinson (Titanic Playing Cards, Gettysburg Civil Unrest Playing Cards, etc.) presents Pompeii Playing Cards. His custom poker playing cards are inspired by the novel, The Last Days of Pompeii, written by Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1834. Mr. Bulwer-Lytton was an English novelist, poet, playwright, and politician. He devoted his novel to the tragedy of the city of Pompeii, the ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples, Italy. It was destroyed and buried under ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

See the playing card project on the “Kickstarter Projects” page.

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.
