Jean Francois Dupuis Playing Card Wall Art

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestby feather

 

Dupuis is a Canadian illustrator/photographer. As a result of this, his work often starts it’s life as photographs which have then been manipulated/distorted/painted over to create the finished pieces. His playing card wall art is naturally of particular interest to me, and here I will highlight my favourites.

Gabe is a tattoo artist who also does amazing paintings. His speciality is skulls, so it’s little wonder that these pieces depict Day of The Dead imagery. His other pieces are extremely lifelike, so these cards seem to take a break away from the norm for him. I like them :)

Bicycle ‘Club Tattoo’ Playing Cards Review

Bicycle Club Tattoo Spread

Bicycle Club Tattoo Spread

I love tattoos. Don’t actually HAVE any of my own. But I love them. I just hate pain… Which is why the Bicycle ‘Club Tattoo’ deck of playing cards is perfect for someone like me. I watch ALL the shows. It started with Miami Ink (love Chris Garver) then LA Ink because Kat Von D left and opened up her own shop – and she does the most amazing black and grey portrait tattoos – and now I can’t get enough of Tattoo Nightmares.

For those of you who haven’t seen it, it’s a TV show based in a tattoo shop in Los Angeles, where the 3 tattoo artists – Jasmine, Big Gus and Tommy – basically cover up old, embarrassing or artistically inept tattoos of its’ customers. It’s not actually a ‘real’ shop, it’s just a front for the show, but the artists are real and the tattoos they cover up are very, VERY real….. When I think back to the different tattoos I’ve wanted over the years but my fear wouldn’t permit me to get, I am soooo relieved that I’m not having to go get cover-ups done because there’d be plenty…. Sylvester the Cat being one of them…. :/ But I digress. Back to the review. Continue reading

So, you’re still reading….? Good. I shall continue. You may get settled because this is my longest review to date.

Pippoglyph Playing Cards Jack of Spades

Pippoglyph Playing Cards Jack of Spades

I am very proud to be the owner of the First Edition of the Pippoglyph deck by Ben Crenshaw, now of Bent Castle Workshops. When my deck was printed in 2004 it was the first time I had ever seen a completely bespoke deck – not only the back but each and every card was designed from scratch. I loved that. This deck excited me and I had to have it. Continue reading
