54 International Cuties

Josh Cooley and Bill Presing are super talented storyboard artists at Pixar Animation Studios who have recently joined forces on this creative project.
Together the two have designed and illustrated a new deck of sexy and sassy playing cards. Their collaboration yielded 54 Intercontinental Cuties, a real playable deck of cards, with a unique pinup girl on each face representing different places.

The majority of the 54 Intercontinental Cuties deck represents various countries, but they've taken some creative liberties and added unusual locations, some of which are fictional. Eden, Pangea, the Bermuda Triangle, the North Pole, the South Pole, The Forbidden Zone and The International Space Station are represented in the deck, alongside other countries and places.

It's more fun to see how they went from sketches to the final art, than just looking at the final cards, so here's a look at the roughs and finished art of some of the cards in the deck.

The cards will soon be available for purchase in his online store.
