People say they love dogs all the time, but does it really mean anything if you don’t have dog-themed playing cards? Whether you’re playing poker, solitaire, doing a magic trick, picking your neighbor’s lock, or whatever other fun activities you do with playing cards, you can now do it all with tiny doodled doggies looking back at you.
Pack of Dogs, as the deck has been branded, is the latest project by San Franciscan artist John Littleboy, who operates a kooky and creative online playing card shop known as Artiphany. “Transformed by an artist’s imagination, these ordinary playing cards are a small box of treasure,” he writes about the canine-inspired set on his website. Adorable, simply-sketched critters have been Littleboy’s specialty since 2010, and he also offers a range of cheeky greeting cards – sorted by animal and occasion, of course.
Shuffle through Pack of Dogs below, but heed this warning – normal playing cards may never seem cool again.
