A Swedish graphic designer name Patrik Svennson has created a series of playful cards that have illustrations of humans. These drawings show humans posed as the traditional symbols seen in ordinary cards. The use of a king, queen, knight and joker characters have been altered by Svensson’s cards feature with human illustrations.

These clever drawings show a humorous alternative from what they been originally been seen as. The heart, for example, has used a woman's body structure or a man holding it as a symbolic meaning of love. There are many ways in which each traditional symbol has been used for a different purpose in a creative illustration. It's simple and direct for game players to understand and add to their artistic collection of fancy playful cards.
