Love is…

Does anyone remember the comic strip called “Love Is…“?  I remember them mainly because my parents had a bunch of prints of them and I always thought they were so cute, yet a little naughty.  I mean, they’re 2 butt-ass naked characters and it was acceptable? 😉

Love Is… was born out of the 1960s, unsurprisingly in the time of the hippie movement – a lot of the images have that cheesy kitschy nostalgia about them.  So in honour of Valentine’s Day, here are some of my favourite “Love Is…” comics.

  1. They’re familiar, but I don’t know why. I might have seen them in passing in a compilation book. They’re super cute! =) Got to wonder why they’re naked… Adam and Eve, I guess? Very indicative of the period. Thanks for posting!

    1. My parents had a couple of them in frames – I remember one was on top of our piano haha. I don’t know what triggered my memory but I thought about them one night as I was falling asleep and I thought it’d be good for a Valentine’s Day post. 🙂
