The cake may be a lie, but the lie tastes good!

So today I walked into a restaurant unknowing that was playing card themed, I thought it was kind of awesome since I am working on a playing card deck at the moment. So yeah… I totally took some pictures. I thought it was a pretty cool coincidence.

Zhang Ding: Analgesic 

Free-Standing Sculpture Tinted copper, 18K Gold, pure silver 

Analgesic is easily the most blatant of depiction of materialism. This hand in particular takes on the fallen nature that ZHANG wants the audience to see; the pills lay around the hand as if they have been dropped.

The hand itself is holding the mass produced pain pills beyond its control. Here we begin to see the control of the market over society.

ZHANG has taken a well known and popular household product and made it into nothing other than material gold and silver purchased and held by the hand of society. The human has lost identity and lost control, implying the degradation of consumerist culture. And now all we know is the pills given to us; the drug of the masses.

Alice in Wonderland Card Deck - Part 2 by karla-chan

Here are 5 more cards for my Alice in Wonderland card deck, making 16 out of 54 done! The last picture is what I am currently planning to be the back of the cards, I know i showed the picture on part one but I thought it would look good with the cards to help visualise the deck a little more. Thanks so much for all your support and feedback so far on part one, I am so pleased to hear people are keen on this deck. 

I am still open to thoughts and suggestions though. Hopefully when it is complete I will be selling the deck in my Esty store.

Since people are really liking my Alice in Wonderland themed card deck, I thought I would post the original sketch of the Cheshire Cat I drew, so people could get a closer look. I am quite happy with them, and I have to figure out how to draw him again in a 2nd pose for the other Joker. 
Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in my deck! Your support means a lot!

Alice in Wonderland Card Deck - Part 1 by karla-chan
So I thought it would be a “good” idea to draw an Alice in Wonderland themed card deck. Not only would I do this but I would give each card an illustration, and not just make the heads of the deck themed. Some drawings would be simple and others more complex, however I am playing to do a full 54 card deck, which includes the jokers. They are all going to be in my cross hatch style, like the cards above.
The last picture is what I am currently planning to be the back of the cards.
It would be things relating to both books since 54 illustrations would be a lot to do, and I want to try and keep the cards as unique as I can if I can help it. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a Alice in Wonderland themed card deck? Since if I did manage to finish the full thing, then I would probably try and sell them in my Etsy store.
I would be interested in peoples thoughts and feedback.

love this!

I am really happy you do, I hope people will like it! :)

Dude, those rock!

They look great. I actually though the teapots were the Aces before I noticed they were Twos, you might want to consider making them Aces since they often tend to be one large image in the middle like the pots. Then again, I might be the only person that that thought they were Aces, so I don’t know.

Thanks for your feedback, but I really want images of Alice to be the Aces! So hopefully the Aces will look more detailed then the teapots. Plus since the teapots are reflected and there is two images of the suit on there I think it would be weird to have them as the Aces.
Plus I am hoping over all the whole deck is going to be more detailed and have more images then a standard deck of playing cards. 

I see, that makes sense, I still think the teapots are a bit confusing, maybe not have them that close to each other  that they look like two images? Maybe I am making a bigger deal out of it then it really is.

I am not sure if you are making a bigger deal than it actually is, but it is good to hear people’s concerns. Since if others struggled with it then it would be useful to know. Hearing people’s thoughts can be really useful.
It would be much harder to have them as two images because the bases of the teapots overlap. I wouldn’t want to photoshop the top one twice because, I went to a lot of effort to do the opposite shading on the reflected teapot. 
I do also kind of like them as it is, I am still happy you have me your feedback though because it is always useful. 

Fair enough, at least it’s out there and if it’s an issue people can comment on it. I am not saying it’s a big issue ether, it’s just something I noticed since I had to look twice to notice that they were in fact not aces.

Not everyone would comment on something like that, since people rarely critique. Which is why I will think hard about any critique I have been given. So I have been thinking about what you have been saying. Hopefully if other people have the same issue they will say. 
Hopefully they with the more detailed pictures of Alice as the Aces will help too.

You must have infinite patience. These are gorgeous :D

I like to give myself projects to prove to myself that I can do them. Since I would love for art to be my career and if I had an art career I would need to be able to do complete projects. I will be honest and 4 of these images are recycled art that I drew for something else, I am not going to do that too much for this deck though.

I am really happy you like them though! Thanks so much! :D <3

Can’t wait to see the rest :D

(Also, apparently my blog had automatically unfollowed you. WTF Tumblr?)

Awesome, well I am going to do some more work on them today! I am not sure when they will be up on my blog, but hopefully I can get some stuff towards them done. 

Yeah Tumblr does that and it is weird! It is really annoying! I had my boyfriend unfollow me once, because of Tumblr doing that!
