When I created this illustration, I had one thought in mind: Valentine’s Day isn’t just about flowers and chocolate. It’s a universal language that has been perfected since the dawn of time, by all sorts of civilizations and cultures. It’s also a healing power that can bring us all together, through the unspoken language of kindness and love!
The inspiration behind this watercolor and pigmented-ink pen illustration is about the broader significance of Valentine’s Day. The story of this hand-lettering illustration is about how love knows no boundaries and is truly universal.
On top of the lettering, I’ve added several mini tribal and folksy houses – including an old Chinese lodge, a Teepee, and an African hut made of hay – to signify the universality of love, and the timelessness of this strong healing force.

In addition to ink pen, and as I have mentioned in my post about my a previous illustrstion video, I’m using a vintage watercolor pan set by Pelikan, called “Deckfarbkasten Super 24.” To watch my previous illustration video, go to: https://youtu.be/CskQ72VMeTM
I wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day filled with beauty, sunshine, and love!
