TERRA PRIME, 2022
illustrated conversation deck
Kickstarter launch: March 23, 2022
Terra Prime is the brainchild of University of New Mexico professor Dr. Manuel Montoya. It's a collection of complex, interwoven ideas about the nature of global capital, its proclivities and horrors. Working with a core team, I laid out the "Blueprint Deck" from Dr. Montoya's concepts and texts. Each card features a public domain image on one side, and on the other, questions and provocations about the archetype depicted. We're planning further phases of production for Terra Prime, including decks by other artists, a grimoire, a virtual world, and a videogame. The conversation deck will launch as a Kickstarter on March 23, 2022. Go HERE for more, including the downloadable Handbook that accompanies the deck.
Below, you'll find some of the prototypes of the cards I designed in 2021, while working with Dr. Montoya to develop the card deck concept. You'll also find images of the cards I laid out for our Kickstarter launch of the Blueprint Deck.
