Pop Culture Card Deck
Recently, I discovered Deckstarter, and needed an interesting project for self-promotion, so I decided to build a deck of cards. I’ve always been a tad obsessed with pop culture, the cult of celebrity and what kind of toll it must take to live your life in the spotlight, so my mind pretty readily went to a pop culture card deck. I think this current style of illustration that I’ve been exploring is perfect for reflecting the personalities of famous people. It flattens them out and and promotes them to icon status which is, in and of itself, a (somewhat satirical) comment on the pedestal we erroneously put them on.
