Valentine’s Day Cards to Strike Terror into the Hearts of Your Loved Ones
Lia Kantrowitz, VICE’s very own senior editorial designer, and Kelsey Niziolek, an illustrator, co-run a clothing brand called Sunday School. Together, they peddle out an assortment of clever T-shirts, art prints, and bags. Ahead of Valentine’s Day, they wanted to do a series inspired by the cards you get at CVS as a kid to give out to your friends. (You know the ones.) However, they chose to update these for adults and use vintage Hallmark Valentine’s as the inspiration. Each artist did a handful of designs using the same border and colors to keep the full set consistent. The final product is a glorious pack of notes poking fun at the dark melodrama of a holiday that drives most of us insane.
