Say "Halo" to Your Valentine! | mrsmiley { February 14, 2005 }

A couple years ago Lorraine McLees released a few Halo Babies valentines on Bungie.net. Unfortunately, with the change over to the new site design, they got lost. Today being the special day that it is, I thought it appropriate to re-release these to those who didn't see them the first time!

All of these were drawn by Lorraine McLees of Bungie, and are property of Bungie Studios.

UPDATE: Hmmm... Louis Wu brought to my attention that the original news post is not lost, but can be found right here. Oh well, it was still good to bring these back to the surface one last time.

Um..those are in the Art of Halo book. Sheesh, some people...

I knew that, but these are the original copies that were posted online, not scans from the book.

19 | Gruntsbane says:

Smiley taking heat just for trying to bring some love to all the lonely people. Where do they all come from?

20 | Falcon says:

Oh, Gruntsbane, maybe we just come from random locations from all over the U.S., U.K., and Canada!

I come from California, for example, where the girls are warm! Lol! ;)

Although, ironically, I don't want a girlfriend because a girlfriend is simply excess baggage and will just get in my way! :(

At any rate, I remember these Halo Valentines day cards from a year ago! They absolutely kick a--! (It's good to have personal censorship!) ;)

Do not post your comment more than once!
It will take longer than expected. This is normal.
