I just have to post this steamship somewhere –
in all its glorious steampunkiness!
A couple friends and I were working hard on
a tangle book about steampunk
that we never quite finished.
I thought I’d pull a few of my pieces of art out
and share them today!
My steamship in the first photo should be
Just Steampunk Magazine‘s next issue.
The three of us had developed a load of
steampunk tangle patterns and were making
pieces of art showcasing those patterns.
I finally published a bunch of those tangle patterns
in my Tangle Starts Planner.
Actually, I included a total of 106 tangle patterns
in that book.
My friends Sandra Strait and Christine Reyes
both had sections of their own patterns in the
planner as well.
Actually, while I’m talking about it –
the planner is set up to start at any time during the year.
You set the monthly, weekly, daily pages up
the way you want them to be.
Then there are all these new patterns,
places to store thumbnails of your favorite patterns,
lots of extra pages for collections, notes, and
places to tangle.
If any of this sounds interesting to you,
you can read about – and see some of the inside pages –
you can order your own copy on Amazon –
OK, commercial over.
I really love this piece above.
I made it with alcohol inks on Yupo Paper.
So much fun!
I used this for an Art on a Shoe String post.
Cheap Walmart school row watercolor can
give you some beautiful color!
I am really proud of these last two.
Bramhall is the dragon above.
Bramhall got a full page in the August, 2017,
issue of Just Steampunk Magazine.
Not long after Bramhall, I got a request from a young
asking if I would draw a dragon for his
So I flipped Bramhall, added a few flowing details,
and some color and shipped him off to Connor.
Connor appropriately named him Frost
and Frost is proudly hanging in Connor’s
Frost got a full page feature in the
February, 2018, issue of
Just Steampunk Magazine.
I hope you enjoyed my steampunk rambling here.
I will show you more in a post soon.
Interested in tangling up a bunch of steampunk?
Here is a link to two of my Pinterest boards
dedicated to steampunk art and
I would love to see what you do.
Steampunk is fun and so flexible and forgiving.
You just can’t go wrong.
