This spiral notebook is available on ETSY HERE and is adorned with my “Steampunk Skeleton Heart” artwork (a mixed-media creation inspired by Day of the Dead and the Steampunk genre). It’ll be a lovely gift for yourself or for that special someone who enjoys writing and appreciates a touch of macabre steampunk in their collection.
I had lots of fun creating this rendition of Star Wars. Vader and his Stormtrooper buddy were created with pen/ink and digitally colored. There’s a great Asian influence in the notion of “the force” (chi) and swordplay, so I wanted to capitalize on that via the Japanese Samurai theme. These pop culture icons also went through the retro-futuristic filter, which allows for a great freedom in artistic exploration.
These Star Wars Art Prints are available on my ETSY SHOP
“Skeletal Heart” is about love and death amidst the quiet beauty of nature. The colors are muted to highlight the subject matter and details of the illustration. Like many of my recent works, I’m greatly influenced by Victorian elements, steampunk, gothic surrealism, and nature.
“Momento Mori” is Latin for “Remember Death”, which speaks of the transient nature of objects and one’s mortality. I wanted to create a world which celebrates positivity and beauty in all forms, where memories of love exists beyond the confines of time. The original artwork was created with ink, graphite, some of my own photography, and a touch of digital coloring. PRINT AVAILABLE HERE
Here are some concept sketches for “Momento Mori”. I wanted to infuse some steampunk elements, but after the rough sketch, decided to add some roses to soften up the image. I’m pretty pleased with how this piece came out as it exhibits an emotional narrative.
Here’s a detailed horse illustration created in a traditional vintage steampunk style with gears and a clock face in the background. The print is available HERE at my Etsy shop. The horse was created with pen/ink first, then scanned and transferred to Photoshop, cleaned up, and a few color tones and textures were added.
Happy New Year! As 2014 is the zodiac year of the Horse, I’ve created a free steampunk style calender that you’re welcome to use for personal/non-commercial purposes–home, office, etc. You could download the calender HERE or by simply clicking on the image above.
This steampunk-inspired room theme and object collection (piano bookshelf and wall clock) was created for MyWebRoom.com, a cool website where each designer room object coordinates to bookmarks and browsing features.
