Just in time for Halloween, artist Chet Phillips has released a spooktacular deck of cards, each illustrated with a playfully creepy creature. The monstrous deck includes four trick-or-treat inspired Wild cards, including a possessed candy corn, a batty Tootsie Roll, a bad caramel apple, and a cupcake straight out of The Thing.
Awesome Chet Phillips
Artist Chet Phillips managed to incorporate three pastimes into one with this deck of cards: baseball, monster movies, and of course poker. The deck features 58 original illustrations of baseball-playing Kaiju from the Godzilla and Ultraman worlds, playing in the Demon Monster League. A limited-edition comes with a custom card box.
Artist Chet Phillips expresses his askew world view with a wink and detailed renderings of creepy creatures from pop culture and literature. His limited-edition playing cards feature 58 illustrations of characters from Cthulhu to “The Muppets”’ Animal. Half the fun is how Phillips IDs the critters with pseudo-Latin names.
