Left-brained Larry & Right-brained Rachel by Niels Wee

This is the tale of Left-brained Larry & Right-brained Rachel, a Siamese twin couple, stuck
together by the head and thus resulting in them sharing only one brain. Using exactly fifty percent
each, their separate personalities are kept intact and following the theory, being either left- or rightbrained, Larry and Rachel are complete opposites. They have a hard time being stuck together with their counterpart, but not only do they hate each other, their abnormality also makes them dislikable to the people around them, leaving them with a melancholy life of bullying and parental neglect.
One thing the couple shares though is a common hatred and a longing for revenge.
The opportunity arrives when they find out that using the whole brain at once might give them
supernatural powers that can help rid them of their enemies. But the tragic lesson is learned: Being
so opposite their team work is doomed to go terribly wrong."

Nanami Cowdroy

"Nanami Cowdroy was born in Sydney, Australia with close bonds to her mixed Japanese-European heritage. Growing up with such contrasting cultures and surroundings, has greatly influenced her style of art and creative expression.

By intertwining complex characters and highly detailed objects her pieces reflect a juxtaposition between foreign and familiar entities and environments. Her imagination is illustrated through works which are elaborate and exotic. She is drawn to subjects, which may on the surface seem delicate or fragile, but are given strength and depth through her pen and ink techniques, intricate hand illustrative style and mixed media compositions.

Her signature detailed style reflects a refined monochrome pallette with her name 'Nanami' (meaning 'Seven Seas' in Japanese ) stamped in red. Fluid line-work, watery creatures and Goldfish are some of her favourite subjects, and distinctive forms which are featured in her artworks." ~Nanami Cowdroy

"João Ruas was born in São Paulo, Brazil in 1981.

At an early age he was left alone with crayons and papers for a few hours every day, developing an unusual feral behavior which only got worse through the years. João was displayed in London from 2004 to 2007 inside (for an, yet, unknown reason) companies that developed Films and Games. He was shipped back to South America but managed to escape his cage, being spotted inside (for an, yet, unknown reason) Design and Animation Studios, however, the last sights at those locations happened in November 2008.

Since then it was reported by anonymous witnesses that João could be in a tall downtown building , in São Paulo."
