Double Parlour is an art collaboration between Ernie and Cassandra Velasco, who live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their art dolls have a vintage feel to them, but with a modern twist. Sad looking, young ladies carry monsters in their arms as pets. Monsters have arms that seem almost too long to hold up. Characters in fun, striped swimwear don’t seem like they’re having the least bit of fun. Yet, they are immensely fun to gaze at.
