The Planets is a collection of decks representing the planets in our solar system, starting closest to the sun and moving outwards into the surrounding universe. This is the most luxurious Vanda deck series to date. The fifth deck of this series is Jupiter, featuring one-eyed bull-like creatures.
From the artist:
"Jupiter was named after god of the sky and thunder and king of the gods in Ancient Roman religion and mythology. The Romans regarded Jupiter as the equivalent of Greek Zeus.
So, I want this creature to be strong and powerful. There's a story in Greek mythology when Zeus metamorphosed into a beautiful white bull. I took this as an inspiration. But I didn't want just to draw an ordinary bull, more like a creature that resembles a bull. The crown is big and beautiful, because Jupiter is king of the gods. Now, the one eye. On the actual planet, the Jupiter's great red eye (or the red spot) was my inspiration. So, just like the planet has one big eye, so do the creatures living in it. I think it's nice symbolism."
We are printing 2 editions:

Risks and challenges
After producing 15 decks of cards with the United States Playing Card Company (USPC), we've got all the logistics figured out. We learned a lot during our first few Kickstarter campaigns and at this point the process is a well-oiled machine.
We'll be partnering with Gamblers Warehouse to handle all order fulfillment. They are pros at shipping logistics and specialize in the playing card industry.
Proofs have already been finalized and approved with our deck and tuckbox printing is already underway, so you can expect to receive your rewards without any extended wait times after the campaign ends.
