Mates of the Art

Jacqueline Schmidt assembles couples from land, sea, and sky in her print that proves that true love can be found anywhere, anytime, but only between a few very special species. We know wolves run in packs, but in fact, these paired-up pooches prove that the phrase "lone wolf" is a total misnomer. Angelfish respect the sanctity of their one-and-only relationship, Gibbon monkeys stay together for the swing of it, and hawks, swans, cranes, and pigeons are all proven lovebirds. Even termites show that the couple that shares an appetite for good things in life is destined for a fruitful relationship. This unconventional take on amore makes for an ideal gift for the nature lover or an affianced, newlywed, or just wildly romantic couple. Made in Michigan out of 100% recycled newsprint paper.

Professional illustrator and designer Jacqueline Schmidt is always ready to put pen to paper. “With so many creative thoughts rolling around in my mind, I have learned to be able to capture and document them as soon as they come in,” she says. Her sense of the moment and knack for blending the urban and natural worlds have led to her work being displayed everywhere from galleries to newspapers and magazines to the stationery company she founded in 2008. But as much as her innate imagination inspires her, motherhood has moved her more. “Having kids has definitely expanded my creative self,” she says. “It’s beautiful. I am grateful to them for opening my heart and mind even further.”

I love the old school look to this print. I love the color, the style, and the subject matter. Truly is eternal love. My husband and I have had many conversations about mates for life, and seemed appropriate for our home.

One-of-a-kind gift for your *committed* significant other

By 

from Kaysville, Utah

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Mates For Life:

I got this print for my girlfriend, we've been together for over 3 years. We both are divorced and in no rush to get married again. But we both are committed to the relationship and to each other. I thought this print would be a great way to signify that commitment to one another. I didn't opt to have the product framed; when I got it I wished I had! So I took it to a local framing business and they will get it framed for me. I believe one of the employees there is going to order one for her husband as well! Just a great, one-of-a-kind gift, exactly what you expect to find at Uncommon Goods

      Comments about UncommonGoods Mates For Life:

      I like the product but I would recommend the artist put more artistry in his/her lettering. I am not crazy about the lettering under the pictures.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was excellent. Product was well packed.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Mates For Life:

      As I was puzzling over finding an anniversary gift for my hard to gift husband, I found this in your catalog. With time running out, but with excellent customer service, I was able to get it in time. I understand the artist was contacted to make sure we could get it in time. My husband had not seen anything like this and he loves it.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Mates For Life:

      The print is beautiful, everything we were hoping for! And, to our relief, the print was packaged excellently for shipping. I was a little nervous that it would arrived rolled or damaged, but it was packed flat and well protected! Impressed all around, can't wait for our friends to open this wedding gift!
