Ukraine Artua Sci-Fi Add to Collection

This art project consists of four cards which were inspired by robots and the stories of Isaac Asimov and the Three Laws of Robotics. Artua explains:

Designing of the playing cards is the door wide open for pure art. It's really boring to look at 52 images. But it's getting quite different when all the cards are combined by a single theme. We are the design agency so we are always looking for the new styles and genres, especially when it's a lot of room for creativity.

For the black suits we have decided to use workhorse robots, as for the red suits let it be the leisure life lovers. Now it's just a little left to do - to develop and to design the cute characters and we will decide later who will be an ace and who will be a two. For now there are just a few of them, but it's not a hard work for us but also fun.
