Earth: Some of the wildest things in life, have been pollinated by many sources of inspiration. Seeds of ideas grow creating something that could only exist in its moment by pulling from the strengths of what came before.
Fire: Early animation from Disney inspires Osamu Tezuka to make Astro Boy. Astro Boy inspires artists to create and develop anime. Their ideas spread like wildfire through the imaginations of filmmakers and something as unique as the Matrix is created, igniting the imagination of the world and changing the game forever.
Air: This deck started as a subtle breeze. Influences whispered in youth playing Magic the Gathering with friends; imagining the elements were at our command. It draws subtle style from the Magic the Gathering artists like Quentin Hoover, and the comics I started collecting when I was a kid.
Water: All of this inspiration has flooded my mind, swirling within my imagination and now, formed from the solvent of all of these influences the Elements Deck is here.
Jacks: Having recently acquired their power, they are quick to use it and are their element incarnate. Unrestrained and brash, their raw power shapes them.
Queens: More refined, they personify the elegance and flow of their element’s form. Nurturing of their powers and confident in their refined abilities.
Kings: Noble and powerful, they have honed their powers and rule over their element with strength and force.
“One-eyed-Jacks” and “Suicide-King” are included within the design.
