My name is Bryan SilverBaX and I am an artist. A while back I had done some fan art for a few horror movies and made the art look like a playing card. As those art designs gained popularity I was told repeatedly that I should do a whole set of cards. I shrugged off those suggestions for a long time, mainly because it sounded like a lot of work. HA. I have finally broken down and done it... I created a full deck of playing cards featuring my art work.

Each suit has a specific fandom theme and contains 13 fan art designs I created. I have included some of the most loved characters from each fandom and some that get very little attention. I could not include all the favorites from each fandom but that leaves room to grow. If this project is a huge success you could have more packs getting released where the suits and fandoms could be switched up so that you could have one fandom occupy more than one suit in your deck. If that happens I promise to leave the pack of the cards the exact same so there will be no difference.

These cards were created by using just black, white and maroon. This was done to give the cards a unique look and the limited color allows every card to feel like it matches the others. Too many colors and it could make your brain hurt while you are trying to hold your poker face.

I am a geek that happens to be able to draw a little bit and with the proceeds of this project I will be able to pursue my goal of releasing my own personal comic book. 

Thank you for any help or support and if you have read this far down please continue to support artists and continue your geeky ways. AND as always....STAY CREATIVE!

-Bryan

JUST ADDED - The availability of getting an un-cut sheet of the whole deck!

Risks and challenges

The challenges of this project were coming up with 54 different characters that would appeal to as many people as possible without upsetting those whose favorites that did not make the cut. Another challenge was coloring all these pieces with such a limited pallet.

The main risk of this project is being spanked for drawing the things that I did. That could draw unwanted attention to me and what I do, even though I plan on using this project to slingshot my personal comic book series.
