Twins Cartoon is the pen name of the Egyptian twin brother’s duo Haitham and Mohamed Raafat El-seht, working together as comic book artists and cultural managers. They grew up reading comic books and studied together in the Faculty of Fine Arts, Animation Department, Minia University, in Upper Egypt.
Since graduating in 2008, Haitham and Mohamed, who agree to work best as a team, have been teaching the art of comics in workshops and festivals around Egypt and abroad.

Inspired by the cosmopolitan city of Cairo as a place holding a rich visual identity, culture, and different urban spaces, they drew their own artistic path trying to adapt with this strong unifying culture that co-exists with super cultures, subcultures.

This led Haitham and Mohamed to form a cultural and artistic initiative named Kawkab El Rasameen - "Planet of Painters".
