To celebrate the Blu-ray and DVD release of season 4 of House of Cards, we’re setting a new creative brief to create a bespoke deck of playing cards inspired by the hit political series. We’re calling for talented emerging and established artists, illustrators and image makers to submit a single piece of work from their portfolio – it can be new or existing – that exemplifies their skill in interpreting TV or film culture into a single image.
Through these submissions, we are looking for the ability to capture character likeness, interpret a scene or express the essence of a film or TV show in a single illustrated work. Fifty-two artists will be carefully selected by the LWLies design team to respond to a creative brief, the results of which will be published right here next month. All images must be original and the copyright of the artist, illustrator or image maker. Submit your work before midnight on Sunday 10 July to firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line ‘House of Cards’. Good luck!
