A few weeks ago, I made a comment that if there was a television program made of my life, it would probably be called "Hipster Mom Stuck In The Suburbs And Constantly Waiting For Her Son's Bus". Truth is usually stranger then fiction. Anyway, dear Angie (and Snooky) sent me these two lovely cards. The first is a a very Steampunk Snooky helping me wait for my own bus (probably a steam powered one.). The card cheered me immensely needless to say.

Almost a week later, I received a 2nd card! This amazing "Joseph Cornell" card! He is one of my "Art Hero's", Angie and I thank you again for such awesome cards!

It's all making more sense now!

"Put a cog on Snooky and call him Steampunk!" Thanks for all the links!!!

I know this conversation has kind of gone the way of the steam engine, but here is a blog post that was written by a friend of mine, that really, clearly, explains "Steampunk":

I thought it might interest some of you.

Snooky is my art hero.

Here's another one that is rather splendid!


(I've actually had the pleasure to see the good Professor perform at Steampunk Convention last year.)

Glad it gave you a laugh, KDJ!

Btw, I happen to like gears and cogs. I think there great design elements, so I wasn't knocking them.
This did make me laugh though:

Could be; many Steampunk Artists "mod" all sorts of stuff beautifully, but I guess it's up to the artist. Do you have a link?
There's a bit of a joke that was going around (in the Steampunk community ):" Add some gears to it and call it Steampunk".

A friend just sent me an email showing the work of James Corbett, an Aussie sculptor who uses spark plugs and car parts for art, so I googled him. Is this Steampunk?
