Valentine´s Day - Like it or loathe it, everyone feels compelled to participate - and so the factory owners laugh a hearty laugh for another year and stoke the fires to belch out more cards, gifts and other materialistic tokens of love - leaving valentine's day ending up looking cheap, nasty, suffocationg, sickening... You get the clue.

It's a thin line somtimes, don't you think?

SO, this is my submission for the DeviantHEART contest: [link] - I don't really know why I'm entering, I already have a Print account, but whatever - I'd had this idea floating around my head since before the comp was announced so I figured I'd just kill two birds with one stone :)

As is customary, kudos and much love goes out to my stock suppliers -

:iconscunnerstock: for the fabulous pipe filled factory

&

:iconstocks-by-manaxmomo: for the plume of smoke I used - I promise, it's in there somewhere!

So, yes, anyways - an anti valentines day message this year - I'm really not against the idea of celebrating love - love is a many splendid thing after all - I just take issue with the notion that's it's one huuuuge buildup to one day of the year - guys are under pressure to get the perfect gift, girls are obssessing about all the romatic things they'll invariably end up not doing - and all the singletons winge about how they're so unlucky! Much like Christmas and all other major holidays, it's a lot of buildup to what is largely a very damp squib of a day that only rarely lives up to your expectations...

And yet - this one's not even a religious holiday! Ok, birth of a deity, fair enough, you can have a day devoted to that, death of a deity you can have best part of a week - but a saint being mauled by a lion? Now you're pushing it!

Yet in spite of that, like it or loathe it, everyone feels compelled to participate - and so the factory owners laugh a hearty laugh for another year and stoke the fires to belch out more cards, gifts and other materialistic tokens of love - leaving valentine's day ending up looking cheap, nasty, suffocationg, sickening...anybody see where I'm going here?

Ahem, anywho, I think my point is made - whatever your status, much love to all for this time of year - I know it's a pain in the ass and an excuse to sell more chocs before Easter but have a good one all the same :)
