DeviantART: Daredevil Playing Cards by Hannah Friederichs

Hannah Friederichs (AgarthanGuide) is an American artist. She has created several subject playing card artworks. Themes are quite different. Styles are also quite different. The only common thing is her “portrait” approach. But one way courts aren’t always bad 🙂

This post is devoted to her Daredevil playing cards. These are some type of fan art made as playing cards… like her other playing card artworks.

Daredevil is a fictional superhero brought by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Bill Everett. His first appearance can be found in American comic book, Daredevil #1 (April 1964).

Daredavil is a lawyer, Matt Murdock, in his daily life. Living in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City, Matt is blinded by a radioactive substance that falls from an oncoming vehicle. The radioactive exposure takes his sight, but heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability and gives him a type of sonar which acts as his vision. The superhero fights against his many enemies.

Netflix (an American provider of on-demand Internet streaming media available to viewers) hired Drew Goddard (an American film and television screenwriter, director, and producer) to create web television series devoted to the hero in December 2013. All episodes of the first season premiered on April 10, 2015. The series reveal Murdock’s early days fighting crime, juxtaposed with the rise of crime lord Wilson Fisk. The style of Daredevil was slightly changed – no red tights this time.

“I started with the card dedications given to Fisk and Daredevil and went from there.  I considered expanding it and adding a bunch of other characters, but – no plans as of yet.” ~ Hannah Friederichs

The Jack of Hearts is Daredevil (Charlie Cox). The King of Hearts (senior person?) is his friend and partner in his law firm, Franklin “Foggy” Nelson (Elden Henson). The Queen of Hearts is the secretary for Murdock’s law firm, Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll). The Queen of Diamonds is Fisk’s love interest, Vanessa Marianna (Ayelet Zurer). The King of Diamonds is Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio). The Jack of Diamonds is Fisk’s right hand man, James Wesley (Toby Leonard Moore).

Bēhance: Parks and Recreation Playing Cards by Andrea Austoni

This is a custom deck of playing cards designed by the Polish artist Andrea Austoni. He used the characters of one of his favorite TV comedy series – Parks and Recreation (an American comedy television series on the NBC television network). Andrea wanted to pay tribute to the show and to practice his portrait skills, doing something fun in the process. When he realized that the cast featured 8 male and four female characters the idea of the playing cards was born.

In order to echo traditional card designs he chose a two-tone muted color palette and a simplified portrait style. He made the contrast between the elegant colors and the funny characters. © Andrea Austoni
