SKETCH BICYCLE DECK

The Tuck Box for the Sketch Bicycle Deck emulates a traditional sketch pad. The spiral rings are visible on the front and back, and the sides graphically feature the individual edges of each sheet. The pencils, eraser and copy treatment on the front complete the sketch pad look in the design.

Image


All of the Card graphics, including USPCC’s Maiden Back and the standard modern Court Cards, were completely hand drawn in a sketch style. To finish the sketch vibe, accent shapes / markings and spiral rings are added symmetrically throughout each Face Card.

The Ace of Spade and Jokers feature a wood mannequin hand model. They're often used for drawing and painting reference with artists of all genres.

DRAFT BICYCLE DECK

The Tuck Box for the Draft Bicycle Deck emulates a blueprint drawing pad. The black bounding at the top wraps over to the front and back, and the sides graphically feature the individual edges of each sheet. Similar to Sketch Tuck, the pencils, eraser and copy treatment on the front complete the drawing pad look in the overall design.

Image


The sketch style drawings utilized in the Sketch Deck’s Cards are inverted to create a traditional white line art on blueprint grid paper look. To help with gameplay, the Hearts and Diamonds large PIPS contain Red borders throughout. To complete the blueprint feel, accent shapes and markings are added symmetrically in each Face Card.

I really like the way they turned out. Still very practical, with the classic Bicycle rider back look, but yet creative and original in style!
