Stocking the Shelves

If you remember I had spent some time recovering at the Island of Tahiti after that ill fated expedition in search of the source of the "Bloop" and the mythical R'lyeh, I had the opportunity to obtain some of the most curious and novel items from among the tribes of the Pacific Islands, particularly the artifacts of the Māori. I anticipate that along with…

Entry 1 - A Most Dreadful Telegram.

Dearest Dora,



As I write these words I fear that my hand cannot keep pace with the breaking of my heart and the welling of my tears. At last I am alone with my thoughts – and such terrible, lonely, selfish thoughts these are! After receiving Mr.…

One of the reasons I enjoy reading Terry Pratchett so much:

“The Patrician took a sip of his beer. 'I was walking along the bank

of a stream when I saw a mother otter with her cubs. A very endearing

sight. I'm sure you will agree, and even as I watched, the mother

otter dived into the water and came up with a plump salmon, which she

subdued and dragged onto a half submerged log. As she ate it, while

of course it was still alive, the body split and I remember to this

day the sweet pinkness of its roes as they…

Steampunk Plague Doctor shirt design

Well, being sick has given me a chance to get back to drawing. I keep returning to the idea of a steampunk plague doctor. My own personal pair of goggles kind of harken to that, I think. At some point I would like to do a full mask of it. In the meantime, though, I've done it up as a shirt design. Very happy with the result!… Continue

Sword Hanger

I bought a sword at Ohayocon. As a member of the Union's Aeroship Cavalry, I thought that I should have a cavalry sword and had been thinking about a Model 1860 Light Cavalry Sword available on Amazon for $30. Actually, I had been thinking of something smaller, more like a large knife or…

Art for Tsunami Relief

This is not exactly steampunk related, so bare with me. As I'm sure you're all aware, a 8.9 earthquake has struck Japan, followed shortly by a devastating tsunami. In light of this, I have decided to put one of my masks  up in a one day auction on Ebay. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross for the relief effort.

 

So if you've been considering donating, or like my work,…

Research to do.

Hello I'm Zombifaction, I'm here to do a bit of research for a thought I had. I hope to turn it into some kind of visual media, but first I have to see what the steam punk style truly is. I need to see the clothes the landscapes the technology and the attitude. Hopefully a friend of mine will help with art but if not who knows maybe someone here will help. But please show me all you got.

 

I hope to find some interesting things here.

Trading Company

Good day to you old friend. I hope this finds you well.

This note finds me awake and at home quite early in the morn. My health is as good as can be expected lately, although some of my faculties can be somewhat tender at times, reminding me of the various injuries sustained whilst serving in the Army or with the force. I must say that my recent employ hasn't aided much in recovery, and I fear that the mild ailments should only continue to be aggravated by the physicality of my…
