Steampunk Illustrations and Stories

What could be cuter than a mallard duckling? Try a duckling in Steampunk attire! This guy makes it into several other paintings, but this one is his stand alone portrait. Steampunk Duck.

Harold the Brown Pelican.

Harold likes to dress up and pretend he is a spy for the Allies.

He always has a sharp eye out for the odd U-Boat surfacing in the cold Atlantic.

Kamikaze Jack.

There's a Legend out in the High Desert country of Nevada and Southeastern Oregon (where I am from, incidentally) about t he Kamikaze Jack Rabbit Corps.

These brave soldiers of the night sit silently on the edge of wide dirt or gravel roads, and along lonely stretches of two-lane asphalt highways. They hear the rumble of an approaching vehicle and begin to time themselves. At just the right second, they leap out into the road, daring bumper and squealing tires to hit them.

Kamikaze Jack was one of the most honored of those brave and reckless souls. This is his last portrait, moments before his death.
