SND (Society of Newspaper Design) is having there conference in Vegas this year. I was asked to illustrate one of the 52 designs that will make up a deck of souvenir cards for the event. I was assigned the 5 of diamonds and this is what I came up with. I threw in the sketch just for kicks. The amount of talent that will be showcased in this deck will be amazing, I'm sure. I can't wait to see all the illustrations/cards in their final glory and play a game of Russian Rummy with them!
