     It was a long ago when i started this project, as every line drawn still engraves deep memories within me.  Money come and goes, Love come and goes, Friends too.  But for your inventions,they will have to stay with you, guiding you through out your life to remind you who you are.  After all, if you think about it.  Wealth is what you still have left when you lost all your money.     At least for me, that is what i think about every time i draw something.

    The siren deck was a special project that was hand designed from scratch. So far, a total of 1200 hours have been invested in this project. I am hopeful that all of the hard work and energy put into this project reflects in the detail work of all the art put together this project was a passion of mine from the beginning and I hope it shows in the results! The bottom line is. By supporting my project you're acknowledging that the time spent on it was worth it, and you are supporting all the good projects with real efforts!

    the point of the project was to create a unique form of playing cards. The beauty of art is it transports your mind to another idea or location, giving you the sense that this place exists and allows your mind to be free, it's my hope that this deck lasts with you forever and beyond... because who knows? maybe your last dream in life will take you somewhere else~

    Traditional processes for drawing.

    what i always believed in design, is that timeless is not important, whats important are the things that time can't define, and thus transcends time. itself.

     each drawing went through 2-4 revisions before finals, including the bigger paintings.

    what if i have other questions?

    send me a message, or check out the updates.   I am constantly online and there are updates frequently.   :)

    Why do I have 1 shipping cost for all

    Because i wanted to simply the method for you guys, so I took out part of my profit to pay for the extra cost in shipping.  that's how much i love people that help my dreams.

    Why are there no discount (10-20 percent off) like some other card projects?

    Simple answer, I hate it.      You should pledge it because you love the work not because of discount. and after you bought the item, it should stay with you for life and you should know that what you bought is worse more money than when you bought it

    discounted object means it will devalue over years. It also means a project have no backbone and creator lack in confidence.  I am no such person.

Risks and challenges

I have a deep knowledge with how playing cards are made. from the kind of paper they come from to what kind of printer they are printed with.
I have connection with both Amanda from EPCC and Joanna from USPCC
If there are risks, i believe it lies in the shipping, if a siren decided to pull a ship down, what can i do really? (joking)
So, potential delays in shipping is possible since i have no control over UPS.
At this moment, i don't really see other big risks. If there are any, i will definitely notify everyone as soon as possible.

if you have any questions, please message right away

thank you!
