About the cards

Cocktail Hour is a new, illustrated deck of playing cards that celebrates the craft of the cocktail – offering a playful and modern twist to the classic deck through custom art.

As a professional illustrator and designer, I've been enchanted with playing cards for a long time. My love of playing cards began in childhood during family games of rummy, and has continued to grow while developing my own deck, as I learn about their history and listen to family and friends’ memories of cards games. They have a universal magic that transcends different stories and cultures.  

Launched on Kickstarter, this delightful playing card deck was successfully funded in June 2016. It's now available and will start shipping November 21, 2016.

About the artist

I'm an illustrator based in Philadelphia. After many years designing for the advertising and non-profit worlds, I turned to illustration where my love for drawing and design converge. 

My work balances a love of handmade and digital processes for a fresh, artful approach. I'm inspired by the stories behind everyday experiences, with a focus on food, exploration and good spirits. I've had the pleasure of working with clients such as as Selfridges & Co., Chronicle Books, The Wall Street Journal, and Real Simple Magazine.
