Google is pairing up with Ira Glass, host of This American Life, for this year’s Valentine’s Day Doodle. Today’s Valentine’s Day version was the result of a chance meeting between Ira Glass and Google’s Doodle team at the company’s headquarters. TIME takes a rare look at Google’s Doodle team as they prepared for today’s drawings, detailing the sketching and ideas involved in the perfectly timed animations, and how six pieces of heart-shaped candy came to life. Google now has a team of three full-time engineers and 10 artists dedicated to creating its Doodles, all tasked with a creative focus on producing short animations or illustrations for events and memorable moments in history. Unfortunately, Google has restricted todays animated Doodle so visitors outside the US will simply see a chocolate making version instead.
