Anything Nick Cave touches turns a little more romantic. In the past I have associated him with desperate longing, tragic love stories, melancholic moments shared between lovers and lovers only, anyone else can go to hell.
It appears he and his wife Susie (a romantic creative in her own regard … see: Vampire’s Wife ) have turned their chins to the more cheery and light-hearted during Lockdown. For Valentine’s Day, Nick has released a very cute and rather twee collection of Valentine’s cards, prints, and other little doo-dads to bring a smile to your special Valentine’s face. My personal favorites include the pastel pencils and the Saint Valentine polaroid, signed by the artist himself. They are a bit childish in their crude doodles and subject matter. But shouldn’t love also be this?
The collection launches today. Take a gander here .
