KFD “Skull n Roses”

KFD were looking for a generic deck graphic that they could roll over from one season to the next. An older design using a skull print had always been a good seller for them and they wanted to freshen it up. Starting with the basic layout from the old graphic I set about designing a board that looked new but wouldn’t age quickly when it was carried over. Three classic images that always work together are skulls, roses, and spider webs, so I decide to use these three elements in revising the graphic. This was the first time I had illustrated roses and I really enjoyed it. They are rather complex shapes, and applying the line and colour to reflect that was interesting challenge. At the end of it I think the board turned out really well, and will hopefully be a good seller for KFD for some time to come.
