One of my favorite artists and a big reason I began collecting playing cards, Brendan Hong, is releasing a new deck at the end of this month! :ugdance:

Check out the sneak preview on Kardify - http://www.kardify.com/2017/03/first-lo ... ek-of.html...

As soon as I saw Brendan Hong, I was in. I'm a super fan of his stuff. It looks like a traditional queen in his style. Instant winner. Bring it on.

I missed out on the Hive decks, but Dynasty and the Ico deck cemented my appreciation for his work. I'm definitely in.

That Queen of Clubs looking bright and pretty, so does that aqua back too.

This could be my first Brendan Hong deck. Wasn't a fan of the Hive series.

These will go live on Kickstarter tomorrow 3/25 at 12pmEST.

I've seen more pics on Kardify. I like different styles of both decks, I like the blue-ish backs on the Noble deck than the Royal grey backs. Both of the tucks don't look that good at the moment.

The Kardify article with pics of the tucks for those interested (this article really should be called 'Second Look' :mrgreen: ):

Yeah, not the biggest fan of the tucks either, mainly the gray one, the white one is probably going to look good in hand with that pearlescent foil(?) though. But the grey tuck feels a little on the dull side, makes it look like a lower tier edition. I could be wrong though, we've seen drastic color changes for tuck prints from the initial drawings before (*cough* Hocus Pocus).
