I love phone cases and skins. For as long as it’s been possible to decorate a mobile phone or a laptop I have done. I have a variety of hard cases available on RedBubble but I was hugely excited when GelaSkins rebranded as Nuvango and announced that their amazing range of skins were available for print-on-demand artists. There are literally skins for every bit of electronics you can think of, not just iPhones and Blackberrys, there are Playstation skins! DS skins! Nook and Kindle skins! Wii skins! They do hard cases for the major phones too, but these skins are ideal for anything you want to protect, without adding extra weight or bulk. I’ve used this brand of skin for years (I have a 7 year old iPod classic in one of these skins and its still perfect) so I’m very excited to finally be able to offer them with my art on them!
It’s currently 15% off all hoodies and sweatshirts over at RedBubble! Use code HOODIE15
There are also new products available on RedBubble- tote bags, throw pillows and bedding!
Last bit of news for today- the latest novella in Nico Murray’s excellent vampire series “Winterblood” is out now, and the next full length novel “Stealing Sunlight” will be available in November!
It’s been a long time since I last updated this blog. But now I’m back, and I hope that the project I’m going to show you will help you to forgive my absence.
In New York State (on the other side of the Atlantic to me) there’s a marvellous coffee company called CoffeeMania. They have drive-throughs and cafes as well as selling their delicious coffee online (I can testify to it’s deliciousness cos I’ve tried all their blends, you should try them too). I was commissioned to design a series of steampunk labels for their ten special coffee blends, and here they are-
There are two decaf blends and eight blends to suit any taste from mellow and soothing to deep, rich and dark, including a special holiday blend that’s perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
If you’re in the area you can buy the whole beans in various sized jars directly from the stores, as well as the bags that are also available online.
Please visit www.cnycoffee.com to find out about each blend and how to order them.
Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who came out to the Leeds Steampunk Market on Saturday. It was lovely to meet you and get to talk Mucha, Doctor Who and all things Abney Park with you all!
I’m working through your emails at the moment but the new products (POSTERS! OMG!) will be going up on Etsy/Folksy in the next few days. Most things can also be found on DeviantArt in the mean time.
Eeeeeeeeee!!!!!! Can you tell that I’m hugely excited about this?!?! Three of my designs are now available as print-on-demand fabric!
The examples shown here are in the basic quilting cotton, but it’s also available in canvas, knit, twill, SILK, and pieces start from the 8″ square sample size to as many yards as you’d like. There are only three designs available at the moment, but I’ll be adding more in the run up to the winter holidays.
Check them out on Spoonflower!
Also, the DeviantArt calendars are now set up to print for 2012, if you like to get your calendar buying in early.

Here’s a little bit of new art for you all before I head off to the Lincoln Steampunk Asylum this weekend.
Made for the Abney Park Airship Pirates RPG project and designed to match one of Mandem’s images.
Here’s the song that inspired it-
Those of you with your own WordPress site will no doubt be familiar with the stats graphs on the Dashboard page. Generally I just glance at it when I log on and for the last six months its been pottering along at about 500 views per month. But when I logged in on Wednesday I noticed that the graph looked strange. I’d gone from 67 views the day before to over 350 so far for Wednesday (ended up over 470, which was my monthly average). I’d never looked at the “Referrers” section before (I’m new to WordPress and a bit clueless) and was surprised to see both StumbleUpon and The Steampunk Tribune in the list.
So first of all,many thanks to the person who Stumbled me! Also thank you to anyone who has come here from StumbleUpon and taken the time to look around, I really appreciate it!!
Secondly, a huge amount of thanks are due to the staff at The Steampunk Tribune, both for mentioning my desktops and for the incredibly flattering article they posted about my art. Thanks also to Steampunk News for posting the same article. It means a great deal to me, I’m still blushing about being called “one of the signature artists of Steampunk”.
Ok, I’ll stop sounding like an Oscar acceptance speech now. The Airship Pirates RPG went on sale at GenCon at 1pm on friday and sold out in minutes. However, the book is still available to order from the Abney Park Marketplace (Autographed by Captain Robert too!), and for those in Europe who might not want to deal with US shipping times, it’s available from the Cubicle7 UK store. Copies bought from Cubicle7 aren’t autographed though 😦
To celebrate I’m planning a competition or giveaway of some kind in the next week or so. If you have any suggestions for how I should run it, please let me know in the comments 🙂
