My project was created around Valentine’s Day 2017 after observing how there now seems to be cards available for every occasion…except breaking up with someone. So that’s how “Is Cupid stupid?” was born! A way to ease the blow but make your feelings clear and so much nicer than a text right?
The illustrations and type that feature on the cards are hand-drawn by myself. My aim was to have the main image looking nice and endearing so it would fit in well with the standard Valentine’s cards only to have the illusion shattered when the unfortunate recipient opens it up.
This collection of cards started out as a bit of fun to pass the time, but it also caught a bit of attention online and even featured on Cosmopolitan’s website which was a fantastic surprise!
Why do you deserve to win?
The biggest achievement of this project was making people laugh. At a time when there is a lot of upset and uncertainty in the world, laughter truly is the best medicine so by creating something that brings a smile to someone’s face (although it probably wouldn’t if you received one…sorry) it makes it worthwhile.
