Brendan Hong talking about his project :
I've always wanted to create a deck of playing cards inspired by my culture and heritage. I have taken various Chinese elements and combined it with the traditional style of playing cards (such as the suicide king and the one-eyed jacks, etc) so it's a fusion of both to make something completely unique and infused with my style of illustration.
There are two different decks in this series. There is the Jade Green unlimited deck that will be printed to meet the demand (minimum of 1000 decks will be printed) while the premium Imperial Red deck will be limited to ONLY 1000 decks printed. Both decks have their own unique elements that will appeal to both the regular playing card users as well as collectors.
The cards will be printed by Expert Playing Card Company. I've worked and printed with them before on The Hive decks and the results have been amazing. The decks will be printed on EPCC's Classic, which is a wonderful emboss finish and stock that feels great straight out of the box. The cards have a nice spring, flex and feel to it, even when broken in.
