The uber talented Marylou Faure is branching out into other traditional yet hipster cool ways to share her illustration genius. She is one half of Dual Originals and their latest project has been to design this Flesh & Bones completely custom, hand illustrated deck of playing cards.
Each card has been rigorously designed to create a unique deck that combines digital precision with Marylou’s illustrative flair. As this is their debut deck of cards they went the extra mile to create something really special. The court cards feature detailed, hand-drawn illustrations based on mythical creatures like the Kraken and a Nymph, and ancient gods, like Triton and Medusa.
Marylou says she has “always had a passion for the weird and wonderful". They wanted to express their take on it through this deck. Each card is embossed to amplify the tactile experience of the deck and to create an exceptionally high quality product.
They have not stopped at paying cards either, they have also branched out into t-shirt too… These designer shirts include artwork from the deck. The t-shirts will be printed on both sides, with a large feature illustration on the back and a smaller pocket motif on the front.
