Card Back Design and Illustration
The back design began with my effort to find the simplest geometric pattern that would contain the shape of all four suits. The pattern I created is used in the design for the card backs, the tuck box, the Ace of Spades, and the other aces.

Face Card Illustration
Art deco sculpture, art, and illustration of people is characterized by the use of simple geometric shapes to create an ideally proportioned figure. All of the Face Cards and the Jokers in this custom deck were illustrated using only circles and straight lines.
