Will you be my Valentine?

Will you be my Valentine?
Originally uploaded by jrpinky_boi
I remember loving Valentines Day and especially paper dolls when I was a child. One of my favorite Illustration artists as a child was Joan Walsh Anglund. One of my contacts on Flickr shared this Paper doll by Joan. I am inspired to make a little illustration of my own for Valentines Day after seeing this. There are some contemporary Illustrators that remind me of her such as Suzanne of Gorjuss. You can see some of her work on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/gorjussart/sets/72157623632806210/ or via her blog http://www.gorjuss.co.uk/blog/ and web site to get to know more about her. Honestly How could you not be Little Emily's Valentine!
Do you have any favorite illustrators you are enjoying for Valentines? Who are you asking to be your Valentine?

  1. Little Emily is sweet and I can remember the many happy hours my sister and I used to spend with paper cut out dolls.
    I wish I still had them.

    Happy Valentines day
    Hugs
