I get asked a lot what I mean by "steampunk" and also - why I choose to draw items in "steampunk" style. Something the answer is a simple one - because I like it, but I'm not explaining really WHY.
My love for Steampunk stems quite far back - as you may or may not know, I'm a little alternative, I like tattoos and piercings, I have bright coloured hair and the enjoyment of Steampunk and Dieselpunk is something a little different.
My animals have been classed as "robot" too as they are metal plates and clockwork - which works too, I like that they are called that.
Steampunk is a science fiction kind of genre, it is mixture of technology and aesthetics - usually inspired by Victorian or the American Wild West. The technology is quite often focused around fictional machines, human included (droids). I fell in love with the genre when reading 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea and as far as the fashion goes - yes I own a pair of the typically well known flying/driving goggles!
I chose my style because it wasn't something I could find elsewhere and that was important! As each design is hand drawn I need the time to come up with new animals etc without being in huge competition with others!
Some of my animals are "Machine" whilst some of them wear the Steampunk style fashion.
I have new ones on the way and I hope you love them as much as I love drawing and painting them!
In the near future watch for new dinosaurs being added to my sites!
