If your intention is to creep out or offend your Valentine this upcoming February 14th, then you should print out these Anna Strain ‘Bad Valentines’ cards and present them to your special someone. Not only are they crudely drawn for added hilarity, but they also feature some ridiculous text like, "You’d be prettier if you lost some weight," and, "Wish you were a virgin, Valentine." It’s safe to say you’ll be spending the romantic holiday alone if you give these out, but maybe that was your brilliant plan all along.

Anna Strain is an artist currently studying in Maryland. Her illustrations are playfully vibrant and are evocative of delectable desserts. She gravitates towards a cartoon aesthetic style, but it’s clear through her work she has a strong understanding of art principles. It makes her cards that much funnier as she purposely renders graphics, like the unicorn, at a level akin to Napoleon Dynamite.
