Fantastic art inspires everyone to dream, it creates a sense of wonder and makes everyone believe in a little magic. Sadly, most of popular fantasy seem to come from a limited pool of the same medieval clad warriors fighting the same horde of orcs. I’m hoping that this little project brings in some color to the world of fantasy by looking into the east for inspiration.
Project Monsoon begins with a set of cards, each suit is inspired by a major asian region and hopefully each has its own distinct character and flavor.
The suit of Hearts is inspired by South East Asia, the great sea and the islands, of sunsets and sunrises, and the power of Magic.
The suit of Spades is inspired by East Asia, of romance and war, of the cold majestic mountains, and the value of Strength.
The suit of Diamonds is inspired by South Asia, of the wild hunt, the heat of the jungle, and the wealth of Courage.
The suit of Clubs is inspired by West Asia, of civilizations dead and forgotten, of the desert and rocks, and the arts of ancient Wisdom.
