Pitman Playing Cards by Greg Coulton

May 23, 2016

Illustrator Greg Coulton was commissioned by Wild East Games to create their new playing cards as part of the PItman game. The cards consist of two Miners and two Bandits sets for the limited edition board game. Greg tells us his thoughts and process about the project;

“I was asked to illustrate  two pretty straight forward ‘pick up/put down’ games cards – but I wanted to really bring them to life in a way that would help the player feel immersed in the American Old West. I didn’t want to make them feel like an ‘ol time’ pastiche however, so I decided upon a hybrid of traditional stipling and hatching drawing techniques, with a more contemporary graphic novel design."

Whether he's creating brand stories or artwork for packaging, portraits or album covers, the art of storytelling is at the heart of Greg's work. His illustration philosophy - "The devil is in the detail", pretty much defines everything he does.
