Pocket Time Machine Playing Cards is just the beginning of a personal adventure.

Why?

Ever since I was a child I have loved animation. For me, the three hour process of putting together a flip book for only two seconds of cartoon motion was more than enough to tickle me pink. Years later, in high school, I got the notion to design a deck of playing cards, though it wasn't until recently that I thought to combine the two together. So, here are several things that I love put together in one entity. Clockwork/Steampunk, Time Travel, Playing Cards, and Animation.

The Project. 

The overall goal of these playing cards is to offer a novelty deck. Something that you might happily display in its box on the shelf, encouraging visitors to inquire about the mysterious decoration. Or maybe carry it around in your pocket so you can show all of your friends how cool you really are.

The Cards.

These cards will be printed on 310 gsm with a linen finish. I believe that the linen feel of the cards is more desirable than a smooth finish.

Above is an image of 16 card backs in sequential order.

What's the big idea?

This is just the start. There are more ideas that are already in motion. Some of which are Board Games all of which (sigh) require money. My intent is to eventually release these games no matter what, but money to invest into these projects helps the process greatly.

Risks and challenges

It is every intent of mine to send off your promised rewards. But as we all know, what we plan and what actually happens are sometimes two completely different things. That being said, the only conceivable limitation I have is Death. (And should death come, hopefully it is a marvelous one that people will talk about for a good solid minute.)
Nonetheless, weather conditions and natural disasters are often hiccups we must face together. Should these or any unexpected events occur expect a delay in arrival. Let us all hope that none of the previous mentioned transpire.
