Theme Thursday Challenge: "Steampunk"
Here's my digital take on the "steampunk" theme (no image was provided). I only recently understood what steampunk art is, and this is my first real attempt. The definition I like best is "a blending of romance and technology." According to ehow.com, "steampunk art mixes modern ideas and technology with those from the past, namely the Victorian Age, when the Industrial Revolution was in full swing and steam was a major source of power. The genre started with literature, where science fiction and fantasy met Victorian-era scientists, but has since evolved to include all art forms, according to Web Urbanist."
