This illustration is one of the artworks for the playing cards of a board game which is being designed by a game designer I’m friends with.
The game takes place at the beginning of the 20th century and centers around the upper crust of that era. The players can place bets on the results of horse races and with a little luck, increase their wealth that way.
Despite the artwork depicting the horse races, it’s designed to show the action from the perspective of the gentleman in the foreground, since the players also take on the role of the audience as opposed to the jockeys.
