Valentine's Day for Everybody by nillia Valentine's Day for Everybody by nillia
Anti-Valentine's day sentiments always seemed kinda silly to me, even when I was single. Why do people get so melodramatic about it? It seems like they let the romantic hype get them all worked up. Even when I was single, I liked Valentine's day cuz I liked exchanging valentines with friends and family. I liked celebrating those bonds. And I liked giving/getting candy. >>; But yeah.
Valentine's Day is for everybody, not just romantic couples. So all you unhappy singles out there-- Stop pouting and go give your friends valentines! =D It's theraputic.

This is colored pencil with a little photoshop. ^^ The little girl is based on my sweet little sister, that I love very much. ^^

well i like your positive attitude and sentiiment that its not just about romance i never thought it was because it honestlant be.. chalky hearts do not equal romance in my opinion. my distaste for it is more about how unspecial it makes everything. i do my best to show my love to friends and family and the one i love all year round.. not when everyone else is. so im not pouting and being melodramatic.. im making it special again.

Beautiful work, as i've seen with all of your creations. I agree, the commercialization ruins an otherwise sweet holiday. It really is meant to celebrate love, and sacrifice, since it really is dedicated after a Saint named Valentine that gave his life as a martyr, just people didn't like him preaching about love. I realize this is a very belated comment, but i hope everyone starts to adopt the healthy attitude that you have.

i couldn't agree more with this! i also find it strange that someone, single or not, could hate valentine's day. it's like saying they hate love in general
