"They" Illustration Print by smacshop


It's that time of the year when we celebrate those born under the Astrological sign of Gemini and so today it's all about twins!

Twins make some pretty stylish looking furniture -

"Twins" chair by Vadim Kibardin, "Twins" lights, Phillippe Nigro "Twins"chairs, chairs, and "Twins" furniture unit by Daniele Lago

as well as rather impressive sculptures -

"Twins I and II" by Jaume Plensa, "Sea Folds" by Christina Parrett Brinkman and "Twins" ceramic sculpture by J.D. Perkin

and beautiful mixed media pieces -

On the left: "See Me" mixed media piece by Marlene London and To the right:  "Connection Number 4" embroidery by Mary's Granddaughter and W "school" embroidery by Narioka Works

They can be artworks that are pretty -

Emily Finan's "Victorian Twins" (my favourite!), "Orchard Twins" by Art and Ghosts and "Twins" print by carambatack

or pretty bizarre -

Top row: "Twins" by Everyone is Mad Here (LOVE it!) and "Seeing Double" screenprinted poster  and along the bottom: "Gemini" by Elsita, "The Twins" altered art photograph painting and "Frida Kahlo, Potrait of Sisters" print by 3crows

Maybe you would prefer your art to be part of a "Twin Set"? -

Clockwise from the top left: "Go Ask" print blocks from John Golden, "You Are My Sunshine" set of two prints, "Till Death" set of two prints, Typography print gift set. "Love is all You Need" print set and "Morning Coffee" prints

My very favourite twins though are Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee -

"Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum" felt robots, Twedle dee and Tweedle Dun Alice in Wonderland silhouette printgift bags, Alice in Wonderland "Tweedle dee" sketch, "Twedle Dee and Tweedle Dum" art doll by Cart Before the Horse and The Black Apple's version

very Wonderland indeed!

A happy happy Friday to you all and I hope you enjoyed your lesson in gemellogy.

May your weekend be "double" the fun,

  1. Hello Stephie:
    Yes, thank you, we did enjoy today's post! We rather like pairs of almost anything but then, both inside and out, we are rather fond of symmmetry.

    Have a lovely weekend yourself.

  2. P.S. You did very well with your hat stands for $5. Want to sell?!!!!!!!

  3. Hi Stephie,

    Were do you find all those pictures? Some look horrid, others really pretty!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  8. Such a great idea for a post!
    And a happy Saturday evening to you :)


  9. i love geminis! as a libra they are our best astrological match aside from other libras :)

  10. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments and I am glad that you all thought that twins were a fun idea for a post! It is so good to hear from you all and I hope you enjoyed your weekends "twice" as much! It's good to have double the fun methinks!

    Kimia, my husband is a Libra and so I am hoping that Aquarians are a good match too! Could I be in trouble?! (He! He!)

    Jane and Lance - the hat block I bought is really old and battered but even so, I would not sell it! If you do ever come to Sydney for a visit though, it is yours to take home
    with you! x

    Talk soon everyone, Stephie x

  11. These are great - I have another one for you I found the other day in Hanna's portfolio:

  12. Thank you for featuring my illustration (the first one in your post)... found out by someone else you'd posted it! Being a twin, of course I love all twin things. :)

  13. No problem! It must be such fun to be a twin. I love the print. The faces remind me so much of my mum! Hugs, Stephie x
