“Hotcakes” Combines Burlesque Illustrations and Playing Cards

"Hotcakes" Combines Burlesque Illustrations with Playing Cards

I don’t link to Kickstarter’s very often but this is a project I can’t resist. Created by Peter Dunham and Linnea Gits, the creatives behind Uusi, they’ve created a beautiful deck of cards that are inspired by burlesque and the illustrations of Andy Warhol.

Our inspiration for Hotcakes came from traditional 17th Century, full figure court cards that have a cartoonish flair and lent themselves easily to a burlesque-style exaggeration. This new and “naughty” court was then mixed with the Pop Art era’s hot-neon colors, Andy Warhol’s playful illustration style, the one-off art decks of Charles Pry and the distinctive quality of the Italian designer & artist, Emillio Pucci’s gorgeous patterns to arrive with the final look of Hotcakes.

Love the creativity of these. If you play cards often this will certainly be a conversation starter for your next get together. You can snag yourself a set by clicking here.
