Bicycle Plugged Nickel decks. Skeleton cowboys tied with barbed wire

 

Matt Drake is the man behind VixenTor games. He is an illustrator and graphic designer and he has launched his very first playing cards project on Kickstarter: Bicycle Plugged Nickel decks.

Matt has blended the Far West imagery with the death and other elements (skeletons, barbed wire, explosives, …) to make a set of weird and disturbing cards.

There are two editions with different colors: the rusted tin deck and the wanted poster deck. The decks have been completely customized: pips, aces, jokers and court cards. By the way, court cards resemble the traditional aspect of the standard deck in terms of pose and shape.

The decks will be printed by the USPCC under Bicycle brand. There is an interesting work behind these cards as you can see in the gallery, include some exclusive images of the raw drawings and the extra cards used this time to show a hard quote about violence. I hope you like it.

You can visit the project website to get more info and raise your pledge.

 Good luck!
