Hey gang,

I was talking with my pal Mike over at Collectableplayingcards.com regarding their new Kickstarter project which just launched - The Bicycle Pyromaniac Deck!

Here's the skinny:

We've come up with some pretty cool deck designs in the past year, but check this one out! The Bicycle Pyromaniac Playing Card Deck by Ana Albares is, one of the coolest (or should I say hottest) so far. The mind-blowing magician on the front of the tuck case is pulling a flaming spade from his magic hat. See the cool transformation of the burning magician to skulls on the jokers below. Even a reveal on one for all you magicians out there.

The hand-drawn master pieces Ana has come up with on the 12 court cards below are amazing.

The back card is one of the most detailed we've come up with. This deck will be printed by USPPC on their classic Linen finish. You need to see this fan spread out in your own hand. Wow!

A Note from the artist:

I began with the idea of the flames burning in front of a pyromaniac and thought about the beauty he probably sees in them, maybe as flame dancers, and that is how the fire started.

The main problem with it was how to make each court different if they were suppose to be all in flames, all the same color, etc... So I tried to give each one of them a particular air.

  • The club court has vegetal details, the color is a little orange-softer, I tried to make them kinder than the rest.
  • The diamond court has little details of jewellery, and more yellow than the others. The queen has a rich organized brench, pearls and a certain desdain, the king is crowning himself, and the jack exhibits himself proudly.
  • The heart court is the most simple of the courts because I wanted it to be a little dark and pure as desire.
  • The spade court is easier to explain, all of them hold spades, knifes or a spear of fire, the cards have more red to remember the blood or the anger and all of them have an agresive attitude.
  • The jokers are the magician in the tuck case, is the Pyromaniac who was finally burnt by the flames and has become a flame skeleton devil, who plays with the burning cards coming out from his top hat.
  • And then all those spades, hearts, clubs and diamonds remain inside of the top hat, with the fabric liner holding them until they come out to play their magic.
