WICKED KINGDOM is a series of traditionally-painted playing card illustrations by fantasy artist Wylie Beckert. The Wicked Kingdom deck features insanely detailed, hand-drawn artwork with a dark fantasy flair; custom-designed card backs, pips, and dual-identity face cards make for an art-rich playing card deck for cardists, collectors, and fans of the fantasy genre.

Thanks to the support of my many amazing backers on Kickstarter, the complete, playable Wicked Kingdom poker deck is now available for purchase - get your copy below! You can also show your continued support for my dark & whimsical creations on Patreon, or join the mailing list at the top of this page to get updates on future projects as they unfold.

the concept

Early playing card concepts: the four kings.

The Wicked Kingdom series is more than just another deck of pretty pictures (although it has those too, in spades). Each character has a personality, a backstory... and a hidden agenda. You can catch glimpses of the developing narrative in the gallery. With each new card, the plot thickens...

From the process tutorials: handpainted artwork for the King of Clubs in progress...

My playing card projects are creator-owned, one-woman efforts, made possible entirely by the continuing support of a lot of amazing people on Patreon. If you'd like to support my continued creation of playing card artwork, there are some bonus perks like in-depth process tutorials and early access to work-in-progress snapshots (check out a sample of the tutorial content HERE).

If you just want to get your hands on a copy of the deck, you can buy it (along with art books, prints, originals, and other fun stuff) in the shop.
