Hello lovely UC people! My name is Melissa and I'm a graphic designer working under the tag Emdash in the UK. It's a typography joke, not a very good one but it makes graphic designers laugh anyway.
I'm working on designing my first deck, hopefully one of a series, with the working name Ten Kingdoms. It is inspired by Chinese Imperial portraits. It is actually an offshoot of some sketches I did for a personal project driven by my OBSESSION with martial arts films. But pretty quickly I reckoned I'd run into copyright issues which is no fun so shifted focus to my more general love of Chinese cinema.
I am also a crap cardist. I practice every day but I'm still crap, though getting gradually less so as time passes.
I am excited to find UC and it looks like other artists have received really sound feedback and support for their projects here. Hoping the find the same to beat this project into good shape and hopefully I'll launch it through Kickstarter in 6 weeks or so.
Looking forward to getting to know folks here and get in deep into learning more about awesome card design!
