Ho'made Playing Cards, Temp'rary Tattoos

The suits for this card deck were based on a series of spiral doodles, originally meant to be a tattoo design. The deck is 2-color xeroxed and cut with pinking shears. The resulting cards are not completely uniform (apologies to casinos), but they do have a lot of handmade charm (punk rock!). Emily also plays guitar in The Operators and is an amateur animator.
