Steampunk Hands 2016 – Airships by Mark Jason Page

Hands_2015_XPK2It has been a challenge not to add every new interesting piece of steampunk artwork to my collection. There are so many great pieces of all kind, and more being added every day by the creative artists in out community.

One of them is Mark Jason Page, whom I had a chance to interview a few years ago.

As we talked, Mark noted how his work has a sense of whimsy to it, and he takes some design cues from nature. Inspiration becomes mechanical sea creature forms with the Seahorse Carriage and Steam Goldfish.

What really captivated my attention were the Regal Steam Airship and the Blue Legion. Looking at the whole collection of prints, though, I saw a story come together of a certain Ambassador, moving along from one form of transport to another, winding up on the Airships in the end.

If you watched some episodes of the GSN reality game show Steampunk’d in the fall of 2015, you might have seen Mark’s work hanging in the lounge area.

Take a peek at Mark’s portfolio, and if you enjoy a bit of fun in your steampunk art work, then these images just might be something to add to your own collection.

Steampunk Hands 2016 – EuroSteamcon

Hands_2015_XPK1For the last four years or so, there are 30-40 steampunk conventions being held each year around the world. One of the more creative ideas has been EuroSteamcon – a same weekend, multi-location event in Eastern Europe.

Over the years, simultaneous gatherings have happened in Austria, France, Germany, Spain, and half a dozen other countries. Even though I live several thousand miles away, I was still able to participate via some convenient technology, with instant messaging and webcams.

During and after the weekend, it was great to see the pictures that people posted. So much creativity and happiness in each one. Outfits reflecting individuality and the influences of their regions and cultures.

If there becomes a way for me to get there, this is a convention I want to attend, in as many locations as possible. Every year, the impression I am left with is that the Spaniards hold the best parties and the Italians have the best outfits. I probably should make sure in person, though 🙂

If you are interested in traveling a little, and would like to see steampunks in several countries, this might be the next convention on your list.
