LWLIES & SONY PICTURES | HOUSE OF CARDS

Frank’s Blackout Pitch. 

Playing card illustration for a special limited edition House of Cards deck of cards for Little White Lies magazine and Sony Pictures.

The deck was created to coincide with the 2016 US election day and the release of the House of Cards box set (seasons 1-4) by Sony Pictures.  

Do check the LWLies article for the creation of the deck.

Initial sketch and (almost) finished piece.

I had to show Frank’s jacket from a specific episode (s2e6), but not his face. My solution was to recreate a scene from that episode, in which Frank finds himself in the middle of a packed baseball stadium about to throw the first pitch when suddenly the lights go out.

I was later told that the team logo had to come out due to copyright reasons, so the final piece is without it.
