TWO is a picture book, which has two different stories about twins: Mirror and A Book about.
It was a collaborative project I did with my twin sister Margarita at Vilnius Academy of Arts.
A Book about is the result of the many joys and struggles to collaborate with my twin. I played with ink and brush and intentionally emphasized the contrast of my characters. My story is based on a dialogue between twins, who are trying to make a book together. Both are excited at first, but later find out that collaboration is not easy.
This picture book features twins, who don't want to be similar. It is something my sister and I can closely relate to, having lived and studied together. We are not identical twins, but share a lot in common, especially our interest in children's books. Our personalities, however, are quite different and this collaborative book is a proof of that.
