The Inspiration for this project has been an interesting one. So many of my decks in the past have centered around a theme or a specific moment in History. Because of this, I have always had historical characters to feature in my decks depending on the theme.
For this project, the beginnings were a little bit different. Many times between projects I will spend a few days just gathering reference and pouring over tons of beautiful images of art and other things that I might find inspiration from.
As I was searching for a creative direction for a new project, a song began to play on my playlist that really caught my attention. My wife sometimes calls me a nerd in my choice of music. I enjoy listening to all types of music but when I am working I seem to find the most focus listening to instrumental music from cinema, games, and other types of media.
This song captivated me, and it was the catalyst for the entire project. I put it on repeat and listened to it to all day while creating a completely new set of court cards from the images of, what I would describe as a mixture of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. The designs that transpired over the course of the day were promising to me, and most of very different from any of my previous work.
The title of the deck was actually derived from the title of the song that sparked it, Invocation.

This deck is a great vintage style deck with the story if a great hand me down from a geandfather.
Classic KWP design paired with a really comfy and good-fitting tee! Now can we get a black or dark grey version of the Suicide King?
Absolutely amazing. My wife loves puzzles and she was going to glue it and hang it with the tapestry side but when she flipped it over the card side was even more stunning and decided to hang it with that side out we are working on legal tender now and then to Romeo and Juliet
This t-shirt is great. It is one of the softest shirts I own, fits me well, and came with a handwritten thank you note! I love the design as well. The only minor issue is that the shirt is a little on the long side. I have a long torso, so I rarely run into this. All in all, this shirt is extremely comfortable and pretty rad.
Favorite shirt! …at least till the black one drops
Love it, thx
The shirt was great. Really love the color and logo combination. However there is one thing I wish would have been different. The material is a bit thin. Would have preferred the shirt to be a bit thicker material. I know that would probably increase the price but I would definitely still buy it. Thank you.
I was surprised and happy when I got these cards! Beautiful design and detail beyond expectations!
Definition of custom deck of playing cards. From inspiration, to design, to artwork, colors, tuck box, and handling. Great example of custom deck of playing cards. Just beautiful cards based off a beautiful idea. Ordering more decks. And grab a tshirt.
I just received these and the pictures online don't do the cards justice. The artwork on both sides of the cards is amazing! There was also a hand-written thank you note included in the box, nice little touch! I luckily did not have issues with the cards sticking to the box like other people have had, the box itself was a little difficult to open the first time but was fine after that. Would highly recommend!
An excellent gift.
These are the most beautiful cards I’ve seen. Bought several for gifts and one for myself. Truly unique!
So happy with my purchase and the free shipping. The live cast brought me in and the new product sealed the deal. I couldn’t resist the Iliad. Keep up the awesome work!

Deck is wonderfully made to re-create that antique and historical feel of ancient times. Love how Jackson makes deck that bring nostalgic, vintage vibes to his art and creation. Can't wait to see more like this around other historical, ancient cultures and literatures of forgotten past.
