I am loving the look of these dice. I just need to assemble them in a shadow box and put them up on the wall.
The Suicide King, The King of Hearts. I had to paint this after reading about the story behind it. I recently finished this painting. The bottom section is an optical illusion. The eyes on the King also mess with your eyes. I’ve succeed in making more art that is hard to look at. Awesome. It was a fun little project though.
Just for fun, find the black dot on the bottom.
I have been getting into the art of playing cards. I am also inspired by the Artist Labrona. I find myself staying up all night on my days off trying to create a little original cardistry. In this painting I started out with just the black and white figures and all the color came afterwards. I had no idea the central figure would end up the king, but after picking up a few books on black jack and beginner card tricks I found myself falling in love with the cards themselves. I have a feeling there is more of this to come. Just a little in process painting I’ve been working on when I get a free moment. #king #cardistry #dougchase
