55 top illustrators, artists and designers team up to create a unique deck of playing cards. Again.
15 April 2015 – Last year Playing Arts project released a deck of poker playing cards showcasing the illustrations of 55 top illustrators and designers. This year brings a new edition, even more eclectic and powerful, with 55 artists from all over the world involved. Since the beginning of April, one card design appears daily at http://playingarts.com/two/following by process insights and short interviews with the artists.
Each card in this deck reflects the vision of its creator and shows his particular style and technique. Freedom to express, variety of methods and instruments, unlimited imagination – that what makes this deck of cards so outstanding. You won’t be able to find two identical illustrations in Playing Arts deck. The only thing they have in common it´s a colorful backside that was carefully designed by Danny Ivan, whose works you can see everywhere from Starbucks to Adobe.
The list of artists involved in Playing Arts Edition 2 is just remarkable: Gabriel Moreno, Antoni Tudisco, David Sossella, Marcelo Schultz, Orlando Arocena, Adhemas Batista, Sakiroo, YoAz, Alexis Marcou, Ars Thanea and many many more.
Digital Abstracts informs all the artists and designers who would also like to dive into something explosively creative, that the enrolment to the next Playing Arts project have been already opened and submission form can be found at http://playingarts.com/submit .
Playing Arts Edition 2 will be printed in the USA by USPCC in Bicycle® quality. The deck is available now by pre-order at http://store.playingarts.com/ for $12.95 (shipment starts in august).
