The third piece in Greg HildebrandtŐs Kid Stuff series is perhaps the most reflective of the artists childhood. Greg, a twin himself, has depicted Howdy and Double Doody in a split composition. This compositional choice along with the positioning of the heads insinuates the brotherŐs competition for the spotlight. However, the lemniscuses way in which Hildebrandt casts the light and shadow across the two faces, he creates a harmony and balance that allows the two to work as one cohesive unit, reflective of the infinite bond of brotherhood.
