Overview

The purpose of this project is to fund a small run of an original 54 card playing deck which features original artwork. All illustrations are complete and a prototype of the deck has already been ordered and tested by the artist. Funding for the project will go directly to printing a small run of the decks, as well as covering the cost for kickstarter rewards and shipping. Any funding past the stated goal will go towards new rewards for backers and future projects.

With increased funding, the cards can now be funded on 310gs, French casino quality cards with a linen finish. The current funds will support the printing of at least 200 decks in both red and blue

About the Art

The deck features fourteen different illustrations of a number of different animals and mythical creatures. Each animal represents one number in the deck, for a total of fourteen unique designs. Drawing inspiration from 'tribal' artwork and tattoo design, the style of the deck is iconic, graphic, and eye catching. All designs were created specifically for inclusion in the deck.

List of Animals

The art in this deck features a number of different animals, including:

Dragon - Gryphon - Phoenix - Elk - Horse - Snake - Fox - Swan - Squid - Squirrel - Frog - Fish - Beetle - Sphinx
