Valentine’s Day Cards by Rio

Yeah, yeah, yeah… I know Valentine’s Day sucks. We don’t need to designate a day to show love, it’s commercialized, there’s too much pressure for couples, etc.

Despite these reasons, I still enjoy February 14th. I like silliness, candy and any excuse to wear red. I also like that Valentine’s Day inspires artists to find creative ways to show love and appreciation for significant others, friends and family.

I also like handing out Rio Yañez’s cards. For the last few years he’s made a set of 6 or 7 one-sided Valentine’s cards similar to those you handed out in elementary school. His new cards feature LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Morrissey, Selena, Ugly Betty, and the Iraqi shoe thrower journalist. Oh, I can’t forget Frida. He makes a Frida card each year.

Rio writes, “as always, please post these cards on the pages of your friends, enemies, shorties, sanchos, and booty calls. To see an archive of cards from years past CLICK HERE.

  1. I really like your attitude regarding Valentine’s Day! Yes, it’s an absolutely commercial holiday, but I’m all about having fun, and while I might not have a significant other in my life, it’s also a good thing to show love to those in your life. And plus, I’m not one for being a grumpy gus on a day where others may (or may not) be having fun!

    Rio’s cards are awesome! I’ll be sure to pass them around. You might be interested in this twisted Valentine’s Day video card, it’s tongue in cheek, and well, twisted. But still pretty funny.
