These are a couple of cards I designed for a group collaborative effort of Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design senior students and professors to create a playing card deck. I was given the five of diamonds and eight of clubs from a standard bicycle deck to illustrate with whatever I wanted so long as it was in my style. I went with a couple of yokai from Japanese folklore, with a little bit of style borrowed from Akira Kurosawa's film Seven Samurai.
 These were designed as a last group project before graduation for us to each keep a set to have a way of remembering some of the best friends and illustrators we know.
