Have you ever met someone and didn’t know quite what to say? In a series of quirky and humorous greeting cards, Emily McDowell tells that special someone or friend exactly what she’s thinking. Her Awkward Cards collection is sure to make you laugh (and blush a bit).
McDowell described her offbeat artwork with My Modern Metropolis:
When I launched my card line, my intention was to make cards that speak to the relationships we actually have, not the ones we wish we had. Every card we release goes back to that principle, but to me, the Awkward Cards embody it in the purest way. Relationships are messy and weird and hard to define sometimes, and I think the Awkward Cards capture that in a relatable, universal way. I love making anything that helps people feel understood — it means a lot to me when people pick one up and think, ‘So I’m NOT the only person who feels this way? What a relief!’
