Bristol Comic Expo

A little heads-up for an event I'll have a stall at this coming weekend, of the 12th - 13th May, the Bristol Comic Expo. If you're in the area please pop along! Last year they had Stormtroopers directing traffic...


I shall have prints, The Steampunk Tarot, and a couple of other goodies for sale!

The Steampunk Tarot

Over a year in the works, through some pretty traumatic personal times in my life, and The Steampunk Tarot is now in boxes! 78 cards, plus a reverse image, and not counting the 'redos'! It includes some images already familiar to some, plus lots of new ones.

The text is written by the lovely Barbara Moore and the images by me, with her guidance and supervision throughout. The 'steampunk world' in the cards is mine and Barbara's, and has our own personal 'take' on things. I've kept it pretty Victorian, but it blurs occasionally.

Credits to some Steampunk Photoshop brushes a friend gave me, which were named 'hannarb'. Inspiration from John Singer Sargent (believe it or not), most images were drawn from scratch, apart from a couple for which I used my own reference or occasionally a pose from fashion sites or my huge folder of random imagery.

Anyway, a snapshot photo of the box and some of the cards, and suffice it to say, I never want to see another cog as long as I live!
