I made this little bag with some of the Spoonflower fabric I received the other day. It’s 9″ tall, though the space up to the draw string is about 6.5″, the top is 8″ wide whilst the base is 5″x2.5″. What do you think?
The slight striping effect in the backview photo is an artifact of the lighting on the fabric, it isn’t visible on item in real life!
Oops, wordless Wednesday turned into wordless and pictureless Wednesday. Sorry about that, I was busy being poorly. Summer colds are the worst!
Anyway, today I’m going to be sharing two new sequel images.
First of all, The Artist and The Archeologist, which is a sequel to the Young Adventurers piece. That one was the kiddies, this is the parents. Had a lot of fun with this one, though oddly enough short hair takes about 30 times longer than long hair to do. How strange.

Mr Octosquidy’s Tea Party by *phantoms-siren on deviantART
And, since its punknic season and steampunks everywhere are heading to their local parks to drink tea and confuse the masses, Mr Octosquidy has decided it’s time for tea. And cupcakes. And cucumber sandwiches. And lie cake.
Down With Tea by =phantoms-siren on deviantART
The following statement is probably going to lose me my steampunk card but I can’t keep in any more. I HATE TEA! There, I said it. I hate the smell and the taste of tea. It’s just wrong. I like chai if its spicy enough and I love coffee, but I just can’t stomach tea. And I’m tired of the assumption that all steampunks love tea. There has to be someone else out there who agrees? Surely? No? Awwwww.
A friend pointed out this video on the Abney Park channel last night.
See the image at 3:28? That would be my Herr DrosselMeyer’s Doll fan art. I don’t know how I never noticed this before, YouTube seems to suggest the video has been up since 2008, clearly I need to pay more attention. Thanks Abney Park!!!
The lovely and talented Chaz Nouveau has just published an interview with me about art, inspiration and international steampunk.
Read it here!
For those of you who missed it, I was also lucky enough to get this piece included in Dr Geof’s First First Tea Company Traveling Museum!
