Here is the next image I did for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Gemini: May 21 - June 21. Mutable Air sign. Intellectual, dual-minded, curious, young at heart, easily distracted. Colors: Yellow and monotone shades. Associated with communication, libraries, books, education, and passing on information. Has a myriad of interests but doesn't always follow through. Gemini is traditionally known as the Twins, so I've depicted the sign as twin youths (perhaps with short attention spans) running around in a huge library sifting through papers and books. (Note: the papers weren't torn out of the books; maybe they’re just notes that they’ve taken that are flying around).

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at www.llewellyn.com.

You don't see many people depicting the Gemini as Castor and Pollux. This is a in treating take on it indeed.

That's me!
Tee hee, easily distracted...
The part having to do with books and libraries is extremely accurate. BOOKS ARE MY LIFE!!! And drawing. And music. And trees. And friends. Hmmm, I suppose the "myriad of interests" part is accurate as well. :) And I have a twin. (Other people say she's just my best friend/ cousin, but we know better.) Her name is Juli. We're from another planet. ;) (Wink)  

Yeah. It's pretty cool. ;p

The only thing here that really doesn't suit me is the set of colors. I prefer blue and green. :) But this is an extremely well done piece.

This is the best interpretation I have seen of the Geminis so far...

I'm a Gemini and a librarian and I absolutely love this.
Will your astrological images be available as individual prints after the calendar is out?
juliedillon's avatar
Thanks so much! :) Once the calendar has been released, I can sell prints. :D I will probably have them up in August.

Why did u make it not like the others...the others r colorful n awesome...I mean this is good but not as good as the others...it would be great if u make a pic of a man pulls out of his own image from a mirror or water. ..I'm protesting coz I'm gemini. :)
juliedillon's avatar
Well, in part because the client specifically requested that I not do a mirror or water image; in part because it was based on several Gemini traits andsymbols, and tings that my Gemini friends like; and in part because every sign is different, not every illustration is going to be approached the same way. There are lots of other interpretations out there of Gemini if you don't like this one. :)
