Let's talk about Nigel Sussman. Most of his art is equal parts mechanical and wacky, a combination that never fails to amuse me. His drawings can seem like an overload of details at first glance, but once your eyes start following the assembly line of industrial parts you’ll see how fun the flow can be. Read on to find what Nigel has to say about his fantastic artwork AND see how he colored in his own page from our third volume.See More »
Steampunk is a genre that celebrates Victorian-era style mechanical machinery powered by steam. If you ever watched the films City of the Lost Children or Wild Wild West you'll know exactly what steampunk is all about. Beau Donnan, a mechanical engineer by trade, shared his highly mechanized high-school steampunk sketches on his Flickr feed. Intrigued by the detail, I was led to his collection of Lego steampunk machinery masterpieces created from the vision of those very sketches. It always amazes me to see how powerful sketching can be. How doing so can bridge the gap between the ideas in our head to fully-realized physical creations.
