[designed in 2022 february]: House of Cards
This is the third design for my Lunar New Year series!
This design is based off of House of Cards. For this series I wanted to connect traditional/cultural aspects to songs & design-wise I went down memory lane a bit for these as I tried to incorporate a bunch of semi-traditions from how I celebrate the lunar new year with BTS song concepts!
For House of Cards, one of the things my family does is play cards over the holidays so wanted to carry that over into the culture aspect of the design (House of Cards was the perfect fit for this tbh) I also recently got into mahjong so it’s a close enough fit too 😂 The design includes a small homage to wings era in the suits as well alongside the classic hyyh butterfly :’) I’m super happy to finally have a design for house of cards bc it’s still one of my favorite songs in their discography 💪🧧
- gold plated, hard enamel w/epoxy
- a little over 2.5 inches tall
- second graded pins may have issues with epoxy fill/enamel fill
Please note that due to the nature of epoxy there may be small specks of dust trapped within the pin in all grades.
The Lunar New Year series is a trio set of pins where I wanted to conceptualize and design pins that would bridge culture and song. So wanted to create something to celebrate the Lunar New Year as it is part of my own culture and pair it with some of my favorite tracks from HYYH era.
