The Suicide King Fez
Our long gestating playing-card themed design is finally available on the web site.
The Suicide King Fez is our take on the classic self-skewering king of hearts imagery. I first teased the concept sketch for this over a year and a half ago and it has taken me this long to get this into thread. The challenge with this design was the amount of small detailed patterns traditionally found in playing card design. I also had a good time working with a mostly primary color palette. I wasn't sure that I would be able to capture the same mood found in my original pencil sketch but I was quite happy with the results.
This festive low-profile fez is the perfect hat to wear for your next poker night or act of prestidigitation.
