Marian Bantjes


In 2005 Marian Bantjes began to send out valentines to a large number of people. She began by creating one image and sending it out to various people. Two years later she decided to hand draw each valentine. She ended up creating individual valentines for over 100 people. I thought this was a really creative idea because people can sometimes be lonely on valentines day so receiving an unexpected personalized valentine will make them feel better. She wrote general statements on them that anyone could relate to and appreciate hearing. It’s really inspiring that she put in this time and effort to make these valentines for people. She didn’t make a profit on them she did it solely out of the goodness in her heart.
