Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

Earlier this year I began my Patreon project to illustrate my very own Hanafuda card deck as a long-term personal project for 2017. I wanted to challenge myself and put my own stylistic spin on the traditional illustrations used in Japanese Hanafuda cards. Following the requirements of the Hanafuda deck, I set out to create 12 watercolor paintings. Each suit is painted as a whole and then divided into the four cards to create the 48 card deck. Hanafuda cards can be used for a variety of games!

Join me to bring this project to life over on KickstarterNine of the twelve suits have been completed, with the remaining three being unveiled through the duration of this campaign.
