As a child, I can remember studying the illustrations on face cards. I loved how they each seemed to have their own personality. I was always suspicious of the Jack that seemed to be such a third wheel. When I started make my own face cards (see below) I realized who Jack was! And don't we all agree that the Ace should be a face card?!
