The Anti-Valentine Countdown

A whole heart can't hide the cracked shadow

Valentine’s day. Not my favorite holiday. But not my least favorite either. (That would have to be New Year’s Eve, when I feel forced by social custom to be jolly, giddy, and go out and have mindless fun. Eh.)

Normally I just sort of ignore the holiday. It’s hard to make romance fit a schedule; it either happens or it doesn’t.

Perhaps you, dear reader, are not a fan of hearts and flowers fun either. Or perhaps you have reason to dislike this holiday. So to you I give the gift of 7 days of anti-Valentine’s illustrations. One per day. I hope you enjoy them.
