Studio Editions / Joker Alternate #1 / Hotcakes Playing Cards
With every playing card deck and tarot we have created there have been countless studies made for each card. We create these sketches to figure out the look and direction that best expresses the overall theme of the deck. Many of the beautiful works created during this concept phase never make it in to the final deck and cutting them is always a difficult process.
Over the six years of creating playing card and tarot decks we have collected quite a number of these working drawings and have decided to give a few of them their own chance to shine by sharing this part of our creative process with you. We have made available a select group of some of the best studies, paintings and even a few works that made the final cut for this rare offering of original Uusi artwork.
We hope you enjoy the "Contenders" and that one finds it's way home with you!
