Each of these Steampunk watercolor paintings were created with different paper in order to achieve a unique texture. I decided to create a steampunk series of animals. The original inspiration for this has always been my roots in Victorian literature and Gothic themes in novels and movies. However, this series emerged from the idea of how we are destroying the planet and the close proximity of technology to life on the planet. In a way we have forced this relationship upon the animals and I thought it would be an interesting study to try and imagine which parts of the animal would become metal.
I showcased this series at the RAW Artists Show in Santa Ana last year. I am hoping to expand this series to include more Steampunk animals.
