Sir Stolen Time

SOLD...Thank you!!

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!
