Sacred Dracometry Playing Cards (Canceled)
The power, majesty, and mysticism of dragons and sacred geometry are fused in Galen Ihlenfeldt's 2nd illustrated deck.
My motivation to make Sacred Dracometry lies within the power and majesty of dragons and the profound mysticism that is found within sacred geometry.
Once the idea hit, I had to start working on it. The shapes and patterns found within sacred geometry that shape everything in existence (from atomic structure to galactic formations) can also be found within the magic and summoning circles that are used to call upon the dragons! Both are concepts that have been around as long as humans have existed, and they both universally exude power and mystery.
This is my attempt to capture their energy and fuse them into something beautiful.
The court cards each feature illustrated dragons that are framed with a double Fibonacci spiral and golden rectangles.
Here is a time-lapse video of me illustrating one of the Kings!
The card back has a dragon's eye peering out of the Flower of Life and Metatron's Cube, which both create one another from themselves, as well as hints of the ancient Sri Yantra pattern, and a circular representation of Fibonacci that blends into dragon scales.
The numbered cards are each built around geometric representations of the number, with an illuminated sacred shape behind the pips, and the eye of the dragon peeking through the center.
The tuck box features an actual oil painting, that I did specifically for this project, on the front and a design on the back that is somewhat similar to the card back.
Two types of dice will be made by Chessex. When specifying which dice you want, simply identify them as "Red" or "Blue"
This awesome coin will be exclusive to this campaign, meaning you can only get it as a backer, or directly from me. It will not be available anywhere else. Coin will be 1.5" across with an antiqued gold finish, and black enamel in the solid black areas. Dragon side will be 3D sculpted! The coins will be produced by Wholesale Challenge Coins.
These beautiful pouches are designed and made by Leopardessmoon Design specifially for Sacred Dracometry, and are available in red and green! They are made out of a sturdy and soft faux suede material. The design features a dragon scale pattern that seamlessly blends down into a geometric scale pattern! They comfortably hold a deck, coin, and several dice, with room to spare. Two decks will fit inside, but it's a little snug.
Deck pouches are now available as an add-on for $11 per pouch. There is NO EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGE for them!
To add on any additional items, you can do so by adding the corresponding amount to your pledge in your pledge manager.
With dice and pouches, you can choose the color(s) that you want in the survey after the campaign.
**When you pledge for a print, after adjusting your pledge, please message me which print(s) you want. Print numbers will be given in order according to when I receive the pledges!
**Note, the artwork will still appear on the tucks. I only removed it from this image to show the specific foiled areas.
Risks and challenges
As with every project, the risks of production or shipping delays are always present.
The only control I have over this is to use companies that have a great reputation for timely delivery of quality products and services.
I will personally be handling shipping, again, as I did with my other deck, Deep. I will be in close contact with you during all phases of funding, production and shipping, giving you all the news and updates as I get them.
Having successfully produced and delivered my first project (on time, even!) shows that I'm capable of handling this project.
All that remains in terms of what is left to do is for me to finish illustrating the last handful of cards. Much like my last campaign, I will be finishing and revealing those throughout the campaign itself.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
