We’re also Team Stark! Though it might be tricky to go out for drinks (we really think Stark is blinking “help” in morse code…)

Hello everyone!

From the title of this post it’s safe for you to assume that we’re absolutely thrilled and celebrations have commenced here at our studio.

It was back in 2017 that we were approached by P. Alexander, editor of Cirsova: a Heroic Fantasy and Science Fiction publication.
What was in store for us was what illustrators’ dreams are made of: to re-imagine in our art style the adventures of the iconic pulp fiction/light novel hero: Eric John Stark.
Stark, also known as N’Chaka, is the creation of beloved Leigh Brackett, none other than the Queen of Space Opera herself and a screenwriter as well that worked on the Star Wars sequel “The Empire Strikes back”.

And we had absolutely no idea of this and that was a good thing because while reading the selected character descriptions (thank you Alexander!) and the books, we fell in love with the lore and the stories for what they were and not for them being part of Brackett’s legacy.

The books are out for pre-order and each time one gets released, look forward for a special blog post here on Starlitden with unpublished artwork from us!

This was a work of love and dedication and we are extremely happy to see it out and we would like to invite you to check out these links for further information:
