I even volunteered to help design the jokers. To be honest, nobody else seemed to volunteer or even think about this rare opportunity to design our own custom joker.
Since I do not have the art skills myself for design (as anyone looking at this blog will suspect), I worked with Juliana Jones (nee Juliana Whipple), who created these beautiful jokers. I brought in some of my collection and showed them to her. We discussed a few approaches and which of our characters should get the honor. Juliana did the design work. Thanks Juliana Jones.
And having helped design my own jokers, I can now check off one of the items on my bucket list. Of course, I'm now thinking that maybe next year, we can take on designing an entirely original deck including all the faces. Would a transformational deck be too much to consider?
