Kickstarter: 3 Questions with Taty Gomez of Delusion Playing Cards

Delusion Playing Cards is a minimal and elegant deck designed for magic and cardistry by Taty Gomez, a Spanish magician from Sevilla. The goal was to create the perfect deck in his own style and share it with the magic community. After two years of development and brainstorming with the help of Manuel Jesus Martín and other friends, the Delusion deck is now seeking funds on Kickstarter.

The deck sports a predominant English Green colorway with a hint of teal, giving the deck a touch of elegance. Delusion features a custom Ace of Spades, jokers and card backs with the logo showcased prominently on the card backs, surrounded by a circle that defines the deck. The courts and pips are pretty much standard but recolored to give the deck a consistent look.

Last week, we had a chat with Taty about the inspiration behind Delusion Playing Cards, support from the community and his favorite flourish and cardistry deck.

What is your inspiration behind the Delusion Playing Cards? How did you come up with the idea?
Like a lot of magicians, I love playing cards, and also I like the design. Two years ago, I thought to my self if I can have my own deck of cards. That would be great, because that deck will be perfect for me! And then, I started designing it.

About the design, I wanted to create a deck with a minimal and elegant design, but also with a vibrant and fresh view. I think that the color of the deck matches perfectly with this idea, out of the classic blue or red decks. Another idea is that the two diamonds in the center of the back. They are a minimal and symmetrical version of my own logo. And there are also two letters, that are my initials: T for Taty, and G for Gomez. This is a little and fun detail that I wanted to put on the cards.

We first noticed the deck on Instagram. What do you think of the community in terms of the feedback and support that you’ve been getting so far?
I’m really grateful and surprised with all the help that I received when I started the campaign. I never thought that I would reach the 50% of the goal in two days. I hope that new backers will continue to help support this project, and we will be able to get Delusion FUNDED. It will be crazy for me.

Finally, what are your favorite playing card decks?
And about decks, I like minimal and elegant decks, because I use them for magic. I like decks with classic face cards, because I use the deck for magic tricks. This is the explanation of the classic face cards of the delusion deck. If I want to make flourishes for a video, I like decks like Sirius-B or Virtuoso, because of their colours. I also like Fontaines because of their minimal lovely design.
