Steam punk droid

Firstly I want to direct you to a fascinating article called 'Towards a Steampunk Without Steam' by Amal El-Mothar over at Tor dot Com. It explores the values of the genre and challenges the concept that it is just brass, leather and goggles, worth a read and will get you thinking even if you don't agree with it.

Anyway after a week (it's been half term whoo hoo!) of fiddling and not getting to grips with anything that reall seemed to work or grab my enthusiasm I finally got an idea. I was sat at my desk staring at bits of junk and an old hat I'd made and not used for another figure when I realised they would make a great head and body for a robot. 24 hours later you can see the result.

Proves what Picasso said "Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working"
Typical that I get my inspiration just as I have to go back to work though!

Just keep fiddling! I love checking out your blog. I'm very poorly at the moment, and seeing your creations gives me great inspiration and gets my imagination going. Inspiration is a bit like a river. Sometimes it's a trickle then suddenly it can turn into a torrent, usually when you're in the middle of something else!
