54 Intercontinental Cuties

A few posts ago I was hinting at a new project thats been keeping me busy, well this is it! "54 Intercontinental Cuties" is going to be a real life playable poker deck. On the face of each card will be a unique pin up girl themed to her own country.

This time around I'm teaming up with my good buddy and fellow Pixar story artist Josh Cooley (who draws some pretty sassy fillies himself). We're splitting the art for the deck down the middle, so we'll each be making 27 original pin up girls total.

These "girls around the world" themed cards will be somewhat oversized to better display the art, but not too big that you can't play a decent card game with them. We should have them printed up just in time for the San Diego Comic-con this year, then they'll go on sale in both of our blog shops afterward.

So here are some of my rough drawings for a few of the countries being represented in the card deck. We want them to be funny and lighthearted each with a little bit of a story gag if possible. For the end product they will be inked on paper then colored digitally.







Check out Josh Cooley's blog to see some of his card drawings for the set. I'm really excited about his, the guy is a laugh riot.
And keep your eye on this blog too, I'll be posting some more roughs soon.

A deck of nothing but the Queen of Spades. Sounds like a prison riot in the making.
