The Mysterious and Melancholy Resin Figurines of @doubleparlour

“We like our characters to look as if they have a past that they may or may not be willing to share,” explains Ernie Velasco. He and his wife Cassie make up the San Francisco, California, artistic duo Doubleparlour (@doubleparlour). Their figurines, which radiate a mysterious sadness, are hand-sculpted from resin.
“We spend a lot of time discussing ideas and bouncing them off of each other,” explains Ernie. The two have a similar aesthetic, however, which aids the creative process. “We both like our characters to display personalities that are melancholy, dark, contemplative or mischievous.”
While Cassie and Ernie endow their creations with rich character, they hold back from illustrating any particular figure’s story. Ernie says, “We like to leave that up to the viewer.”
