Just finished up House of Cards a couple days ago and absolutely loved the series. I’m planning on watching it again because honestly the first time around a whole bunch of political mumbo jumbo went over my head, but I feel like a second viewing will help and I’ll probably enjoy it more than the first. Despite that, I think it was one of the best series I’ve ever watched, coming in behind Breaking Bad. So naturally, I wanted to create something House of Cards related once I was done.
I don’t know what it was about it, but any time there was a scene of Frank and Claire sitting at the window smoking, the image stuck in my mind. It was just so powerful looking. I think mostly due to the fact that these two are such ruthless, powerful figures, and I saw their nightly smoke time together was a time of celebration. They almost always sat there with a smile on their face, enjoying each others’ company, basking in whatever cutthroat deal or trap they had set that day. From the first time I saw it, I knew that that image was what I wanted to use. And here it is.
