After the amazing Kickstarter community (that's you) funded the Steampunk Cthulhu deck (which is finished and currently being printed by Bicycle) I decided to jump genres to bring you the Elves & Orcs Bicycle brand playing card deck. This is a custom deck designed and illustrated by me, and will continue to evolve I get backer's feedback along the way. Here's what you'll get with the deck:

  • Beautifully designed and printed card backs
  • Unique court cards with showing Elves on red suits and Orcs on black 
  • A custom Elves & Orcs box, perfect for tucking
  • Custom seal
  • Air Cushion finish

The short version is that I'm an experienced video game artist and author/illustrator.  My first book, The Steampunk Alphabet was funded last year on Kickstarter and will be in stores in June. My first card deck, Steampunk Cthulhu, was funded in March and will reach backers in the next month or two. I'm a father of 3 amazing boys, and husband to 1 amazing wife. I love creating cool stuff and sharing it with the world.

Well, for the most part varying quantities of signed and unsigned decks of Elves & Orcs cards, plus uncut sheets, will make up the rewards.

The $25 and $45 levels include a deck of the Steampunk Cthulhu deck:

The Steampunk Alphabet
I'm offering a signed copy of my previously Kickstartered, now published book The Steampunk Alphabet:

Aside from that, as I did with the last campaign, I will be offering a digital "print" or two along the way.

Thank you for your support, and even if you don't back the project, help spread the word if you think it's cool and let's make this thing happen!

Risks and challenges

I really feel that are very few risks associated with this project. In regards to my last project, Steampunk Cthulhu cards, I have finished all art (56 cards, custom tuck, custom seal) and submitted it to Bicycle, put in the order for 2,500 decks and am now just waiting on them to get me proofs and start the printing process. They have been great to work with, and after finishing all artistic aspects of a custom deck I am feeling very confident I can do another even more efficiently. I have all the proper templates, guidelines and contacts from Bicycle in place. At this point it's just a matter of seeing if the project funds and then getting the art done, receiving the decks, and shipping them out.
