About

Artist Playing Cards in Ink Tea and Alcohol printed by USPCC

£32,462

I love collecting playing cards - usually from wherever I travel, I try and grab interesting and unusual card sets... then it dawned on me that I could make my own set featuring my other love, portraiture and painting... boom!

So I have been busy collating some of my favourite and most enjoyable portrait pieces from the last 8 years and combined them into a set of designs for playing cards.... 

So here's where you come in... your chance to get in early and help make this project happen especially those Jokers in the pack... you know who you are.. 

Here's the designs I've chosen so far!

 Card Reverse - This is the first Idea for the reverse of Card - I am looking to spot varnish the glass shards where the card symbols are and use a gold leaf or foil for gold details and edging.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge is finding the right supplier to provide a quality finish of card and the money raised will add to the quality of the pack we produce. Reaching my funding target will get a great quality product -
anything over means we can add some specials in the mix ;) The artwork is ready ... I'm ready... fingers crossed this will happen!!
