i've been wanting to incorporate a playing card into a drawing for a while now. in a normal card the images on each end of the card are identical, but i love the idea of them being the same but different. originally i imagined this as being the same person on both ends of the card, a sort of exploration into the duality of human nature. but the structure lends itself well to identical twins too. permanently linked and yet obviously distinct.

the whole drawing is only about 5x7 inches. i don't like the texture of this new cardstock (the surface doesn't hold up well after many waxy burnished layers) and it's terribly hard to draw a face at this size, but i still think you get the idea. if not, go educate yourself.
