As part of the "Screampunk Challenge" for the groups, PFATT and EHAG, the members of the two groups were challenged to create a work that mixed a touch of Halloween with Victorian industrial, known as Steampunk. After thinking about the challenge I decided that my piece was going to focus on time, and time theft (borrowing) and time travel. This is what I came up with, "Sir Stolen Time," a silly skelly that will be for sale this Saturday night on the EHAG Emporium at 9 p.m. ET.
In this full view of "Sir Stolen Time", you can see his magic watch made from paper mache clay and a metal clock face, his metal gear buttons down the front of his vest, his metal key monocle fob with a chain hanging from his metal-gear monocle, and topped off by his time-geared top hat.
This piece is the first work I have ever created with reference to Steampunk or gears, but I'm thinking it might not be the last. I sort of like this thing called "Screampunk"!
I have seen lots of wonderful works created due to this challenge so don't miss checking out the EHAG and PFATT blogs for more sneak peeks!
