Ace of Spades:  bad news, death, separation; the "death card" "You are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace. You will lead them all to their end."                                                                                                                               ~ REBEL HYBRID, Battlestar Galactica As I await the end of Battlestar Galactica, I am still in the midst of my Battlestar binge.  In this case, the symbolism was just too good to pass up.  In popular culture, the Ace of Spades is known as the "death" card, an omen of bad things to come.  In most decks the Ace of Spades is given a very ornate design, so it seemed like a good place to start.  The Battlestar character which fits this perfectly (at least according to the hybrids) is Kara Thrace (Starbuck), so I decided to put Kara (and Kara...you'll understand if you've seen the series) on the Ace of Spades.  Each Kara holds her dog tags and ring, and since the finale does not air until Friday, we can only guess what it all really means.  If you picked up on all the symbols on the card, you might just be a Battlestar Galactica fan :)  End of line. Drawn in pencil, scanned in, colored and background added with tablet in Photoshop. (2009)
