For Alumnus, Art is in the Cards

Jackson Robinson ('06) (Photo by Taylor Robinson)Jackson Robinson ('06) treats a deck of cards the way a gallery artist treats a canvas. He created Kings Wild Project, an illustration and design company that specializes in luxury playing card designs.

He has illustrated 40 limited edition decks featuring historical themes or literature, such as King Arthur and Sherlock Holmes, based on a style he learned in his art history classes.

"Creating art for playing cards allows me to share my artwork with people in a very tactile way," he says. "It not only is art, but also functions as a playable deck of cards that people can enjoy while creating memories with friends and family."
