We’re revisiting the Maiden’s Pearls illustration, this time with a detail of the lines of its cascade of waves, quite fun when it came to inking how the curls turn and curve, each with it’s own twist. Also works as therapy to calm the brain!

As the European heatwave comes closer, the summer experience intensifies.

This is the perfect time to share with you our Summer Medusa. So grab your favourite drink, don’t forget to put on some sunscreen and relax, her hair was instructed to behave and not bite.

We also have a post of the lines for this illustration. Check it out!

There are a lot of Portuguese folk tales translated out there but of course we had to go for one of the exceptions, since we couldn’t find it translated… Nevertheless, here is our attempt to translate the version we got inspired from, in hopes that you too will enjoy it as much as we did since we were small.

This is a story from the 11th century, compiled by a great Portuguese writer, historian, journalist and poet named Alexandre Herculano.

Here we go:

Happy New Year everybody!

Such a dejá vu from our last post, somehow. If you ask us directly, it’s a bit hard to explain how it happened. We might eventually go back into it in the future, but not for now- at least not yet.
We’re happy to restart posting once again and definitely plan on updating our blog a lot more this year. Well, we can’t do worse than 2018!
If you’re someone that takes “New Years” as a time for renewal or even if you don’t really pay attention to calendars, we wish you a Happy New Year of 2019!

Now let’s get busy!

★See you soon and stay inspired!★

 

2018 – Here we go!

Before January ends, we want to wish you all a great 2018!!

The festivities are over, the year just started and we’re well into the working rhythm of the new year but it still feels like 2018 appeared out of nowhere, even if we welcome it with wide open arms!

The tic toc of Time keeps going, so let’s stay committed to the resolutions (ah yes, we mean you too! Don’t let yourself quit if it’s something that you believe is a tool that can get you closer to the person you want to be! But keep it positive, always. No need for bad energy that ruins your Karma★★).

With so many things on the list to focus on and, as always, searching methods on how to improve and keep learning more (never enough!), one of our resolutions is to give some space to better ourselves and balance the personal and work life, because the scale can’t just go tipping crazy to one side!
Controlling this workaholic streak we keep falling into is a priority from now on, since it has resulted in bumps on the road over time, specially health issues (which are stable now. Phew…).
Despite this, please don’t worry, we are aware that we have been posting seldom lately – mainly because sometimes we are asked not to share the works before they are made public by the client and we end up postponing in such a way that we lose track to post it later on…- We are resolute in changing this streak. We love sharing what we do with you and everyone that visits our dear Starlitden!

We hope you get some good vibes from us as we’re sending them out, trusting that we all keep striving and positively achieve our goals!
Stay inspired, everyone!★★
