Incredible men and their amazing stories playing cards made by Tomski&Polanski

Tomski&Polanski decided to fulfill their big dream and produce own illustrated playing cards.

This challenge become reality this autumn and all cards were redesigned. Focused on incredible men cards became popular because of huge number of stories contained in each deck. You can find a lot of rough guys as a trucker, sailor, butcher, driver and lumberjack. Each card has its own storytelling.

Artworks started as hand drawn sketches, after that everything was digitised and edited in Adobe Photoshop.

Final packages was manufactured by small traditional company in Czech Republic. Everything in limited edition of 500 pieces. The pack is available for purchase from their Etsy store. You can also view the project on their Behance portfolio.
