More at my Flickr Account These are images of a recent art project – a birdhouse which will be at a late March Art show (featuring myself, Bethalynne Bajema, and others) at the Genuine Artikle in NYC. This piece is not yet completely done, but, it is close enough. Mainly I need to color the [...]
The title of this piece, by Pablo Lavezzari, is “Utopia”. More Amazing videos and images of his kinetic works (some even more impressive than this, if you can imagine) are available at his site. Story found through the Automata /Automaton Blog
I’m submitting this to SteampunkWallPaper.com tonight, but I thought I would offer it here as well. Coming soon will be other wallpapers from my artworks – I plan to do one a week, if all goes well. Though my source images for prints are each over 30,000 pixels wide, and these only 1680 – I [...]
I’ve always wanted to go to Paris, but I’ve never wanted to go to Disneyland… … One of these days, I’ll have to do both: Anyway, there are more images of the Nautilus in all its glory at Disneyland, Paris up at Voyages Extraordinaires The Mysteries of the Nautilus attraction at Disneyland Paris was prefigured [...]
I’ve never been the biggest fan of jewelry. What my metal allergies do allow me to wear, are things I find myself fidgeting with, taking off repeatedly. I have the feeling if I had these, I would never want to shed them, not for a second – they are just that fantastic. These pieces are [...]
Amanda Palmer, with broken foot, and troupe, doing their music on the road in, what must have been, a rather amazing unConcert: Taken from the lovely, talented, and even literate Jhayne Holmes (Porphyre/Foxtongue), who is one of over several people living in Canada. I highly recommend the larger HD videos, which can be found here. [...]
There isn’t an instrument I love more than the Cello, and the contrabass/double bass/upright bass; Put an instrument like this with a lovely voice, and a great deal of talent, and it is pure magick. Melora Creager of Rasputina would be one example, Erica Mulkey of Unwoman would most certainly be another. She is a [...]

This is a work in progress being made by Catherinette Rings over at steampunkrings.blogspot.com/, a maker of some pretty awesome jewelry. A direct link to the post is here.
Stained – though not as much as my hands are. There are some neoprene gloves under the clutter somewhere, I was in too much of a hurry to find them. I am guessing there was a dresser casualty in the history of the house – there is at least one dresser with these exact drawer [...]

From One of a Hundred – Sculptural Furniture via The Steampunk Home: There is no information on when and if a pocket-sized version of this will be available, but or those not concerned with portability, I give you: Also found at the Steampunk Home Blog: Art Donovan’s absolutely incredible steampunk designs: Steampunk Clock in Distressed [...]
Image from the Portland opening of Coraline, found at the Coraline blog: EvilButtons along with many other interesting Coraline-related things, a blog which I found through the mighty Superpunch. More on the opening party, along with many more interesting images can be found on Wieden and Kennedy’s blog W+K Portland.
The Clock Tower: 2 minutes – A very short, but pretty animated film by Cara Antonelli. You can see more on this film here. La Main des Maitres: 4 minutes – Beautiful and fascinating in its animation and in its short story, you can learn more about this short film and its makers here Watch [...]
I remember many many years back playing “Samarost” online and loving it. It was one of many, many amazing things that I found through Organic Flash.com – a wonderful place for finding new things, were they not so tragically determined to continue to use php bb. The second game, aptly named “Samorost 2” – was [...]
“Nine months of part time work gave birth to The Blackheart Gang’s acclaimed short film called, The Tale of How. The Tale of How is the second part of a trilogy of works called the Dodo Trilogy. It is to later be flanked by The Tale of Then and The Tale of When. The Dodo [...]
Things have been a bit rough this past month, as I am sure they have been for most everyone. I hate updating when I am in a negative mood, but I do need to say we won’t be at Templecon this year. The event organizer has been nothing short of wonderful, and she has worked [...]
Video by the extremely talented and somewhat dark Laura Marling. Her videos, her music speak to me in ways that are dangerous, beckoning me to be that beautifully, tragically human entity I was once addicted to being… a voice in the back of my head telling me how wonderful it might be to be depressed, [...]
This photo is just a bit of a teaser, there are many more interesting pictures on his site, Taggert’s Workshop including a picture of this splendid eyepiece all lit up. Though his Blogspot blog is almost brand new, I would highly, highly recommend subscribing to it. Keep a good eye on this one, I am [...]
I have spent this past week hooked on the compilation CD that came with Issue 10 of TWF magazine, a magazine I bought erroneously for its featuring of Christian Death… This, because I am terrible at recognizing faces, and he girl at the front really threw me off – especially since I do not follow [...]
Okay, I sort of wish I had kids by which to justify buying these. But would I share? “At Xylocopa, we know that the key to a successful education is to begin learning at a young age. Like many of you, we are concerned about the state of science education in the public school system, [...]
Ever imagine what railway engines would be like if steam power had not been abandoned all those years ago? …Well, British enthusiasts have gone above and beyond, creating this modern-day version of the former technology: more on these two videos here
I forgot to mention it before, but I put up a brief strange-fiction insane-fiction story here at The Miskatonic Archive.
Unto Ashes has a free song for you as a Holiday offering (in their blog): Fly On The Windscreen (a Depeche Mode Cover).
I really can’t go for this right now, so I thought I might point it out to you.
“We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight. We shall see these things, and other things which no breathing creature has yet seen. We shall overleap time, space, and dimensions, and without bodily motion peer to the bottom of creation!” Slow [...]
This fine engraving depicts a rather Lovecraftian creature of the deep embracing a submersible craft, much like the Nautilus of Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Atop the oceanic mountain in the far background rests an ancient and forgotten temple, marked at its entrance by the sigil of Dagon. Though small, these engravings are [...]
Airship “Sabicu” – an engraving I did whilst away from my paints and computers. The linework in the actual piece is near dizzying, and like those intricate patterns on celtic war gear, I’ve been told it does manage to swallow the soul of the viewer (or at least mezmerize them for a little while). Detail of [...]
The creators of Coraline sent out 50 handmade boxes to some of their favorite bloggers. Each box is unique and includes items from the movie. [read more at SuperPunch]
This is a limited time, limited edition printing of the airship H.M.S. Gadreel. It is one of a great many details within “Behold the Machine”, a large painting done by Myke Amend for Vernian Process’ upcoming album. The original is painted on a 48 x 24 inch birch panel in acrylics. These are not mere [...]
Taken from the Internets: H.P Papercraft: An episode of For Tax Reasons, which reminds me a lot of the Venture Brothers, in a good way. Habberdashery Episode 1 (sorry… link only): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT9QJVZifVY
Natchez, Miss.:A complete and authentic vampire killing kit — made around 1800 and complete with stakes, mirrors, a gun with silver bullets, crosses, a Bible, holy water, candles and even garlic, all housed in a American walnut case with a carved cross on top — attained $14,850 in the Jimmy Pippen estate sale by Stevens [...]
I am looking for CDs from steampunk genre bands, and books/comic books from steampunk genre, and strange fiction authors to review. I miss having things to write about – I need something more than forwarding on links and videos to steampunk things, or writing about my own artwork and my boring life. I also need more content [...]
