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 Kickstarter
! Nine of the twelve suits have been completed, with the remaining three being unveiled through the duration of this campaign. Become a Backer!
