2013 Indifference Cards

You may recall last year I offered a set of Valentine’s, as well as some “I Hate You” cards. This year I thought about what really was the opposite of love. The answer is indifference. So what do you send to the person you really don’t think about? The person you kind of remember? Of course, in reality you send them nothing. But that’s no fun. So here are some options. And bonus: This year the cards have messages inside, too! These are big files, but totally worth it. I mean, when it comes to letting someone know you sort of remember them…um…you know, it’s like important to…try?

I know. I know. Some of you are out there, full of hate! rage! scorn! and a need to express it. Here are a couple of cards for those of you who need to send some venom.

Who are you wearing?


You watched the Oscars last night, tuning in early to see the red carpet and all the celebrity fashions. You had a little taste of the glamour and glitz of Hollywood. But on Monday you returned to work, turned on your computer and realized, your computer desktop was wearing last year’s fashions! Joan would tear you apart.

Save yourself from further embarrassment and download one or all of these desktop ready-to-wears.

‘I Hate You Cards’ Printables

After devoting a rather long entry to Valentine’s Day and love, I felt compelled to offer the counter-argument, to balance things out. Hate, the passionate fiery emotion that can eat us up from the inside, is not exactly the opposite of love, but compelling all the same.

If you feel like you’ve been neglecting that special someone who you just hate, not giving them their due attention, hand them one of these cards. And they’ll know you’ve been thinking of them…choking on their morning coffee or finding a severed rat’s head in their cereal.

Honestly, I can’t think of any good that could come from giving these to someone, but what do I know?

Valentine’s Day Printables

I have created two very different valentines to share—a stricken little monster and a slightly grotesque heart. If you’re like me, and struggle with the sappy messages in many greeting cards, maybe one of my offbeat valentines will be the right fit for your special someone.

Button “Could you love a monster” PDF

So what’s the story with the monster? Long ago I sculpted a little clay gargoyle, about five inches tall. I painted him solid white. It was February. I gave him a little heart sign that said, “Could you love a monster?” and sold him at the annual Tiny Art Show at Emerge Gallery for $10. Since then, the phrase “Could you love a monster?” has stuck with me. We’ve all been at that vulnerable place in a relationship where we question whether we are ready to dive deeper into a relationship or not. It can feel like asking someone to love a monster. Gosh, isn’t love lovely, even when it’s devastating?

We all know what Valentine’s Day has become, a competition of who can send and receive the most embarrassing amount of flowers and gifts to their significant other at work. I don’t think any holiday is required to express how you feel to a person, but if having a day marked on a calendar inspires people to step outside their comfort zone and take that risk, I’m all for that. I’m a romantic, really.

Partysaurus Wallpapers

What do you do when a project you worked made you smile while working on it? I think you should find a reason to work with those things again. I couldn’t help smiling while drawing some cute dinosaurs for a project. But by the time the project was all done, not all of these party-goers were needed. I didn’t want them to feel sad since they didn’t get invited to that party, so I gave them a reason for existing–wallpapers!

Party all day long with my dinosaurs, just download them from the newly created Downloads page and put them on your computer desktop, your iPhone, even your iPad.


Sketchy girl

I have a hard time sketching in a sketch book. The formality of those bound pages dedicated to collecting my sketches is a little intimidating. But I love to doodle and usually have the most success on scraps of paper.

Now why I was thinking about giant winter hats on a mild summery day, I’m not sure.

After scanning the image, I added some quick flat color. Clearly there is something on her mind, but she’s still cute.
