I started this blog as a place to keep reference material and artwork that influenced me/inspired me while I wrote the first Dr. Monocle book. It’s mainly steampunk stuff, but also includes dieselpunk (like steampunk for WWI and WWII), Victorian era stuff, weird west genre stuff, and, every once in a while, a bit of sci-fi or fantasy work.
Now that I’m on a second/third book/s, I still maintain the site for the same purpose, but also because I enjoy sharing the artwork and imaginations of others.
