For the good ship Ammo Magazine is setting sail, bravely navigating the high seas of illustration for a forthcoming exhibition at London’s Conigsby Gallery.
The Poop Deck Project show will see more than 50 character illustrations from creatives around the world, forming a set of printed playing cards.
The show draws its name from the area of a ship that forms the roof of the cabin at the rear of the ship, and smartly ties in the naval starting theme with its card-game outcome.
However, the usual jacks, kings and queens have walked the plank, to be replaced with a far less salubrious bunch. The suits (replete with skull and crossbones- festooned hats, we imagine) include the Pirate Crew, Cursed Pirates, Royal Navy Officers and Mythical Sea Creatures.
Each suit has its own colour scheme and icons, and the prints will be available framed, as well as on the cards.
The Poop Deck Project exhibition runs from 30 April – 4 May at The Coningsby Gallery, 30 Tottenham Street, London W1T. Inkygoodness’ Beermats characters show will be running alongside the event. For more information on The Poop Deck project visit www.poopdeckproject.co.uk.
