Happy Birthday H.G. Wells

H.G. Wells was born on this day, September 21st, 1866.

It’s a little known fact that the inspiration for his famous novel “The Time Machine” was based on the plans and writings he uncovered belonging to Obediah Krinklenut. Obediah was renowned throughout the world of Steampunk Monkey Nation for his brilliant mind for invention. Along with a working time machine model, Obediah was also famed for creating the Telekinetic Stove Pipe Hat which generated mental mastery over the physical world. (pictured) In 1988 a series of Petroglyphs were discovered adjacent to the Mercantour National Park in southern France. They appear to confirm Obediah’s success with time travel and explain his sudden disappearance. The crude tableau presented the violent death of a well-dressed, Victorian-styled simian by a pack of  ferocious tusked beasts.

Honor the memory of H.G. Wells with a visit to Steampunk Monkey Nation.

Anyone who takes joy in drawing flying monkeys is all right in my book. Check out the wonderful work of fellow Austin Craft Riot member Monica Knighton. She has a wonderful way of bringing animals to life with her line work and color.

Along with her lushly illustrated “Stolen Child Tarot” deck she’s also got a fun Halloween Kickstarter project in the works. Check it out here.

Joschi Herczeg and Daniele Kaehr

At first glance I assumed the work of Joschi Herczeg and Daniele Kaehr was the result of some clever digital manipulation. Instead, their technique is described as a coordination of small controlled explosions with the camera’s shutter release.
