I'm currently nesting in Indiana for a few more days until I head back to the Pacific Northwest to wreak end-of-2009 havoc (read: recover), but I realized I've been doing all my blogging over at the Steampunk Workshop and not attending to this fine joint.
So, here's a wee update as to some of what I've been making, and most of it has been group projects.
Krista Brennan, a friend of a friend, residing in Australia, is an insanely talented illustrator who borrowed some of my photographs as reference for a handful of breathtaking watercolor and ink pieces. Everyone should chuck money and cookies at her for being so darned awesome with the art.
This one is of Willow, using this image from a show we managed for reference.
Chris and Bergen, from a photo I took for their engagement.
And yours truly, from a self-portrait. I am in love with the hairdo and the tentacles.
A year ago, I also donated some images to the recently-released Steampunk Style Jewelry: Victorian, Fantasy, and Mechanical Necklaces, Bracelets, and Earrings by Jean Campbell. I haven't received a copy of the book yet, but the Amazon preview stokes my faith that it will be a fine publication (and I get a shout-out on the back cover! yes!).
More fun collaboration to come in the new year. 2010 will be my craziest yet. Happy holidays.
