About this project

 For centuries, owls have been revered for their grace, power and beauty. Alternately a symbol of wisdom or a harbinger of death, these creatures mean many things to many different cultures. 

Now you can hold all the allure these avians have to offer in your hands, in Strigiformes: A Deck of Owls. Each card is hand illustrated, with fully custom courts, pips, jokers, aces, and a custom back. 17 owl species have been carefully selected for each suit, from the amusing burrowing owl to the regal eurasian eagle owl. The deck is presented in stark black and white, with a contrasting color back.

The cards will be printed in the traditional poker size (2.5"x3.5") with a linen finish.

 My name is Renee LeCompte (in case you didn't figure that out already), and there are two things you need to know about me.  One - I've been drawing since forever; and two - I love birds probably more than it's healthy.  I've completed two projects on Kickstarter now (both bird related) and this will be my third.  I am also the artist for another Kickstarted project, Texts From Parrots 2: Not Guilty!

 

Risks and challenges

This will be my third project on Kickstarter, following two very successful and completely fulfilled on time projects. I will be working with Make Playing Cards (MPC) for printing, a company that focuses well on small print runs with excellent quality and timeliness. If the stretch goal is reached, I'll move production to Legends Playing Card Company (LPCC), a company known for luxury playing cards of superior quality.

The artwork for this deck is 100% complete and I don't anticipate any issues with fulfilling rewards.
