That’s right, today marks the beginning of our presence on Instagram and we will be delighted if you check it out! We’ll be posting new details of our work and confidently abusing their carousel feature!
Our handle is @startwoart so come on by and say hi!
Here’s one of the images we’re working on right now!
This one will accompany the next Portuguese Folktale we will soon release. It’s a very old medieval story and the version we got, though more recent, it’s still a doozy to translate. As you can guess from the title though, it will involve knights, devils and… holy ladies? It’s a mystery for now!
Happy New Lunar Year of the Metal Ox and thank you for following us!
Dear all, today marks the auspicious beginning of another Lunar year and the animal presiding over it is the mighty Ox! But not any Ox, a Metal one, symbolizing diligence, perseverance, power, and excellence!
May you keep growing and improving to face the challenges that may arise on your path.
We would also like to sincerely thank you for your support by following, liking, and commenting on our works! It is a genuine pleasure to share with you what we do, mixed with the things we are also passionate about!
And if this new year starts misbehaving, grab your weapon of choice and face those hurdles head-on! In our case, we chose the noble flamethrower for its fiery abilities can be multi-purpose.
