Lily van der Stokker at Air de Paris

Lily van der Stokker at Air de Paris

The cute design abutting flat footed niceties. That despite greeting cards insistence of overflowing sentimentality, van der Stokker’s skepticism over the clean pre-packaged prose instead inserts the more human version of awkward phrasing, misguided explanations and childish self-congratulation. It’s often comes across as defeatist, or sad, at best when depicting something human. At its worst when appearing a simple detournment of Starbuck’s design; a Suessification of cutery, a sort of arty adbusters anti-advert.
