Hey gang,

I wanted to let you all know that my pal Will Roya from playingcarddecks.com is helping a young artist to achieve his dream of designing a deck of playing cards.

The project looks really fun and I encourage those of you in our Café community to seriously consider picking a few of these up!

Check it out...

ABOUT THIS PROJECT...


First time deck creator Elijah is 11 years old and it took him over 3 months to create the Ghoul Guys Deck.

Working on the illustrations after he got back from school and during the weekends and holidays. Elijah spent a lot of time imagining and drawing all these ghoul guys. He never once lost his motivation or passion during all the process of creating his first deck of playing cards.

THE PROCESS...

  • Elijah did all the drawings using pens. Black lines on white paper.
  • He then scanned them into his dad’s computer.
  • With the help of his dad, they then did all the coloring in Photoshop.
  • Then once all of them were ready, they had to insert each drawing onto each card and see which one would fit well with each card. They had to try a few different ones before deciding on which drawing would go on which card.
  • Then they had to decide how to insert them around the pips.
  • After a prototype deck was printed, further minor adjustments were made.

RISKS AND CHALLENGES

The artwork has been pre-approved by USPCC. Some small design elements may be subject to change based on backer feedback and printer recommendations.

Besides being a super backer, I have successfully completed and delivered several of my own campaigns as well as helping & collaborating with other creators.

I really enjoy the process of creating decks with the artists and working with backers to bring the decks to life. I am in a fortunate situation to be able to cover some of the costs of producing the decks but without the help of the Kickstarter community I would not be able to bring all of my projects to life. Creating these decks is a significant investment of time and money and I am grateful for any and all support.

If there are delays or issues they will be communicated and dealt with in an open manner. As always, I appreciate any feedback.

You are welcome to reach out to me directly at any time and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner.

Will Roya
