I’ve always been a big fan of Playing Arts “graphic cards descks”. The previous 3 editions were awesome . I discovered this project via Behance website and always wanted to be part of this great collaborative project.
Playing Arts concept is to produce an original and beautiful playing card game by asking 55 Artists to design a card using their own style and work on the number of the card they receive. In the end their is a lot of diversity and quality in these cards. It’s a much more original deck that you have in your hands instead of having the same old classic look.
I’ve entered in the contest and was given the “2 of clubs” to design. In interesting choice for me because that gaves me the opportunity to work on 2 portraits: a man and a woman.
I’ve used the graphic style i’m developing in my personal work both digitally and traditionally too. This project was done digitally using my “wacom” graphic tablet. The illustration is a digital painting created in adobe photoshop. Below you can read more about my entry and see how i created this illustration and entry for the contest .
