WHY NO VIDEO?!?!?! ( we tried, but we are artists and don't have the camera, computer or know-how to make one, hahaha so enjoy! :)
The League of Monster deck of cards project! This is the first completely hand-painted on canvas card project we are aware of! My wife and I have spent the better part of three months sketching, drawing, erasing, re-drawing, designing, and painting this deck of cards. Each card was carefully designed, hand-drawn and hand-painted onto 24x36" stretched canvases. One of our favorite elements is the hidden words on the Ace cards. (See if you can find them!) Our dream was to be able to hold this entire collection of paintings in our hands as a deck of Bicycle playing cards. This has been the greatest challenge and we need your help to see our dream come true.
Each and every card is a unique work of art! We wanted to stay true to the original style of playing cards you grew up with and are accustomed to, at the same time incorporating the look of the old-school monsters, creating the league of monsters deck! While each card is an intricate piece of art, they will stand together in the deck as a complete unit!
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk so far has been spending the past 3 months painting this deck! My wife and I have three children ages 3 and under, (time is not easy to come by for us)! We have poured most of our money into purchasing several canvases and high quality professional paint to complete this project. After the project is funded, we will need to have the art pieces specifically approved for use by Bicycle. They have already given us general approvals, but not a total and complete evaluation.
We will need a little time to get the decks assembled and shipped, but will work diligently as fast as we can to get them out once available.
