Valentine's Day Postage Stamp Illustrations

I was requested to design a sheet of six postage stamps and the First Day Cover for the Valentine’s stamp set of 2013. In Finland, the day also celebrates friendship and therefore I chose to illustrate a candy world where on every stamp there are animal characters showing love of their own kind:

 

Stick candy & budgies - Fresh romance

Soft ice & polar bears - Sibling love

Liquorice & whale - Sweet tooth

Chocolate & elephants - Mother's love

Marshmallow & chameleon - Shy crush

Salty liquorice & tarsier - Love for beauty

 

Beside the stamps the sheet includes four small and sugary stickers for decorative purposes. Sweetness overload!
