Art of the Week: Grace Palmer
There is so much wonderful steampunk art out there... but I just ran across Grace Palmer, a wonderful artist (and costumer!), on the steampunk fashion group. Some steampunk art tends a bit much toward the gothic or horror, but Grace's has, well, grace. Her windup animals (all sold, it seems) could be woodcuts out of a fairytale book. However, I fell in love with her Inventor, pictured above. One of the few female *creators* instead of *createds* in steampunk imagery.
Her prices are all quite reasonable -- if I read her site correctly, you can get a 5x7 print of the above for a mere $10.
Steam -- 100%
Punk -- 100%
(a rare homething that manages to be entirely steampunk!)
p.s. Don't miss her be-goggled, gun-toting adventuress!
