    Please do more of these! I never imagined playing poker could get much better. But if you made a full deck of such incredibly visual and original characters id be very wrong. It would be a pleasure to play with such cards.

  • I’m working on them! :D
    I’ve set a big job for myself to complete the whole deck but its progressing slowly… Thanks for the encouraging words! :)
