I don’t really get anything since I don’t work in a store lol

Preparing a selection of stock for upcoming fairs and pop-up shops, I came across an assemblage of  forgotten works and curiosities… Including these Ghost Face Beard Brooches, showcasing The Chin Curtain, made famous by Abraham Lincoln.  #whitagram #brooch #badge #chincurtain #lincoln #engraving #wood #curiosity #tattoo #starvinartist
An ancient Egyptian favourite, the Scarab Beetle, inked and watercoloured… available soon in the Starvin Online Store, as part of a series of fresh prints. #whitagram #beetle #bugslife #scarab #ink #pencil #watercolour #orchid #printfetish #tattoo #starvinartist
Spruced up my artist bio, some what, ahead of some upcoming events, shows and appearances…
“A self taught and cultivated lone wolf, Starvin was stranded as a young child, in a Northern wilderness. Arming himself with a sharpened pencil and set of Biro’s, he escaped into his imagination… an enchantingly macabre and mystical landscape.
In 2005, he returned from wandering the realms of his mind, to develop a creative practice and philosophical approach to working. Harnessing all he had learnt, he began joining the dots between the fields of illustration, design, installation, tattoo art and jewellery/wearable apparel.”
So, less about me… 1st up is the Wellington Mill Paint Jam, in Manchester on Sunday the 28th of September… what promises to be a prodigious day of live art, music, crafts stalls, scoffing tasty treats and quaffing summer beverages.
The event aims to bring together a vibrant and diverse collection of people from around Manchester as well as from up and down the country… including some good folk i’ll be gassing with… AKSE P19,  JAY SHARPLES, MODERATE TWAT KISSA, and BARNEY IBBOTSON… just to name a few of the talent on board :D

Another inspirational reference book arrived today… The Illustrations and works of Andreas Vesalius… Including plates from his masterpiece on dissection, De Humani Corporis Fabrica from 1543. #whitagram #dissection #vesalius #macabre #book #brain
Ordered a couple of new books for reference and inspiration… 1st to arrive was the beautifully gilded Neurocomic. A illustrated journey through the human brain: a place of neuron forests, memory caves and castles if deception. Just what the Doctor ordered… Dope! #whitagram #brain #book #dope
A little forward… We’ve only just met and he wants to share a shower with me. #whitagram #itsybitsy #arachnophobia #newpet
As featured within the pages of this month’s Aire Fanzine de Arte, I am super stoked to be have been invited to return to Santiago de Compostela later this year. Through Nov-December, I’ll be contributing to a group show, that marks the 100th anniversary of the 1st World War, while exploring the idea of death and the process of destruction and construction… alongside the talented works of Basilisa Fiestras, Santi Jiménez,  Laura Salguero and Jorge Varela. Further news will follow…
