Project Description

This project was a platform for me to apply my love of Pixar and illustrate the well known characters in a new and exciting way. With so many recognizable characters this concept was a suitable way of showing off their characteristics and their roles they play in the films. I wanted it to be a special product for fans to admire and cherish.

The challenge was to give all the characters a 'role' to play for each of the suits in the deck. Using their personalities from the films I was able to establish the best possibly role for them to play on the cards.
