Starting Thursday, June 2 you can get a limited-edition greeting card designed in collaboration with good light and Pop + Paper — a brand founded by Jordan Dorso and Wes Aderhold. good light's co-founder David Yi has been a longtime fan of Pop + Paper for their tongue-in-cheek sensibilities. "I was pleasantly surprised that the founders were queer and actually a married couple!"

After being introduced to Jordan and Wes, David quickly realized that they were aligned in their values and mission. "As LGBTQIA+ founders, I truly thought it would be uplifting to launch self-love and self-care cards for June's Pride. It really was a no-brainer, and these cards turned out so much more impactful and beautiful than I could have imagined. They're powerful, uplifting, and truly gorgeous!"

These cards are available in two styles (and you can even get a free card with a purchase of the Metamorphosis Set!). Both are illustrated in Pop + Paper's signature minimalist linework and embellished with an encouraging affirmation. Couldn't we all use one of those? We invite you to send them to a loved one this month. (Perhaps that loved one is yourself.) We believe that small gestures can have the biggest impact.

To celebrate this launch, I asked Jordan and Wes to complete an illustrated interview. Depending on who you ask, they are either more or less stressful than a regular interview.


Please draw portraits of each other.
