In The Beginning...

When Blaine released his Gatorbacks, he inspired an idea in me that would eventually become something more powerful then I could have ever imagined..

The Madison Hellions.

Charm is Deceptive

I believe that art is at its most beautiful state when it has nothing to hide, and I have always applied this idea through minimal and simple designs.
But there was something in me that could only find a way outthrough inticracy and incredible detail.


Good Intentions

I opened up to Oban Jones about the idea, and with his help, the Hellions came alive.
I put my heart, soul and art into everything I do and I am proud that this can be seen in this deck.


These are so much more than playing cards to me.

I am Daniel Madison, and these are the Madison Hellions.

The first edition of Artifice Playing Cards attained perfection, elegance and commanded attention. But you wanted more and we're here to prove to you that we're always listening.

Perfection was just the beginning. The Artifice Playing cards are now adorned with a functional border on the back that allow anyone to perform 'reversed' card effects and improve upon the deceptiveness of your sleights.

Perfection was only the first step. Enter, the next generation of Artifice. Second Edition: Blue.

Due to overwhelming demand, the functional border on the back was added to improve upon the deceptiveness of sleights requiring the alignment of cards, such as a Push Off Double or Elmsley count.

The dark psychology of artifice just got a massive upgrade.

Rockets playing cards are a taste of nostalgia. A deck of cards born from a world of pure imagination. Styled from the famous frozen treat. Rockets look just as tasty in your hands.

The back design is simple, imperfect and fun. Adding boldness back into your card handling.

Lines seem to connect during cardistry moves, creating more daring visuals with little effort. Each court card is turned up, with brighter, more radiant colours that accentuate every spin, flick or twirl.

The tuck is a classic matt finish featuring a rocket lolly flying through space, while the inside is extensively printed with a universe worth exploring.
