I am a Professional Playing Card Designer! AMA!
My short bio:
Being a playing card designer is very compelling to me because it combines traditional art work, with something practical that everyone loves. But the standard cards are so… standard! So I see them as a canvas just waiting for new ideas to flow upon.
This is how I made my way to Leonardo | Art Playing Cards. Leonardo da Vinci is a lifelong inspiration to me, as the metatype for the Artist / Inventor. That’s me!
If you have any questions about anything really, card wise: like why the King of Hearts is always depicted with a sword in his head (!), or how to thrive as an artist, or about any of the other projects I’ve worked on - Like SNIFE my custom Swiss Knife - then feel free to ask! Here are some pictures of the cards on imgur!
