Scalleywag Playing Cards are luxury playing cards for those who enjoy games and pirates. These cards were created and design while keeping the ones who sailed the high seas themselves, in mind. Some of the most famous pirates I chose to illustrate and put on the face cards. Blackbeard, Anne Bonny and Calico Jack are all iconic pirates who lived during 1700’s. As for the patterns on the cards, those were inspired from the patterns found on Aztec coins which pirates frequently stole. This project was so fun and I learned more than I’ll ever need to know about pirates but atleast I know what ‘booty’ means in pirate slang.
