ATCs: From the Deck: Royalty cards

Are you ready for the second installment of the 3-tiered Artist Trading Card (ATC) theme, "From the Deck"? Last month, ATC artists tackled the Aces and Jokers. This month, the royalty cards—Kings, Queens and Jacks—are featured. Once again, the ATCs are creative and witty.

So, without further hesitation, strike up the band and take a look at the Kings, Queens and Jacks stepping outside the proverbial confines of the 52.

And, have you ever wondered what all those picture cards are doing when you're not playing with them?? Alone in the deck… all stacked together amidst the clubs, hearts, diamonds and spades… left to their own devices...
