About

Misery Loves Company

The one question I get asked the most is whether the subjects depicted in my cards are based on real people.
The short answer is no.
But in actuality, I think the hapless individuals that comprise the bulk of Melancholy Greetings probably resemble someone you know.
Perhaps, in one of my dun-colored epiphanies, you recognize a down-on-his-luck uncle, or a rattled roommate, or a disenfranchised friend.
If so, perhaps this coincidental similarity may inspire you to share your unexpected discovery with that uncle, or that roommate, or that friend.
At the end of the day, it's important to remember that "misery loves company" is not an excuse to indulge in schadenfreude. Instead, think of it as a call to empathize.
Sending someone a greeting card won't save the world, but it's a terrific way of saying, "This folded piece of paper made me think of you."

Thank you for your interest in my shop!
Since 2006 I have strived to create products that appeal to even the most discerning Depression Enthusiast. I like to think of every card as an existential crisis in an envelope.
