Replace the artwork of the number cards with pip-like shapes, and you'll get me.

Maybe add a pip-like shape to the aces, too (keep the full art, though).

Holy %^&* this artwork is tremendous for the court cards.

This is one of those "great art on playing cards, but not great playing card art" to me. One of my criteria for decks I buy is that the art fits the media as much as possible (for playing cards that means mirroring, two-way, symmetry, playability, and so on), and this doesn't tick that box at all.

I feel if this artist learned the "rules" of custom playing cards and adapted his art into a more traditionally formatted deck of playing cards, he could have a real winner. The courts could be really special.

Love the artwork, however the indices don't match the artwork at all and look lazy, if I don't back they will likely be the reason. I don't believe at all that playing card art should be mirrored, it's a difficult thing to get right and that belief has ruined many a potential deck as a result.
