I am curious how many of you have heard of Steampunk? Anyone??
So here is the definition for those of you who have never heard of Steampunk before.
Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.
So basically that means is is the combination of sci-fi and fantasy with old technology, but in a very beautiful way. Steampunk usually uses gears, wheels, simple engines with Victorian design and craftsmanship.
With all of that I found the artist Alain Bellino from Nice, France. He creates some modern characters in Steampunk style. Take a look and let me know what you think.
So what do you think? Does this help explain Steampunk? After looking at these could you explain Steampunk to someone else who knows nothing about it? Can you re-explain it to me?
