Steampunk inspiration and resources

Steampunk Crowdfunding: September Edition

Wow! Is it that time again already? I don’t know if it is because of the “back to school” season or what, but there aren’t as many projects this month. But even with fewer to choose from, I ended up pledging to two campaigns this month. Will you help someone’s dream come true, too?

What’s Going on Right Now

Artwork

The Steamplush Gang: Prints, Ends Oct 11

6fcfbd18a9a27e73472e7f762a91233c_originalThe Steamplush Gang is an illustration project of a trio of steampunk themed stuffed toys.  The steampunk look and feel has always fascinated me and I had been brainstorming personal projects that would let me explore more of that genre when I hit upon this gem of an idea.

They all started their lives in my sketchbook where I worked out their core look and feel before I began to refine their design and paint them digitally.

They are all finished now and I am hoping that through this Kickstarter my little creations can help spread some of that fascination and wonder to others.

My favorite reward: A $10 pledge gets you a print of your choice

Junx’n Punks ( pronounced “Junction”, or if you like “Junks and” — feel free to start an internet war over that ) is an all-ages adventure comic starring a group of young survivors in the distant future who physically bond with an adaptable alien race, giving them special abilities to fight for their freedom.

My favorite reward: For a $5 pledge you get the first 24 pages of the comic series, plus a whole bundle of behind the scenes materials like notes, backstory and more.
