First of all, I love steam punk. Secondly, I love steampunk cosplay. I have not ventured into this world myself, partially due to the time it takes to actually design and make costumes, and the cost of attending con festivals. But, my mind seems to go there often. This sketch sheet was drawn during work, as I guard the art. I thought of a steam punk outfit that would actually be constructed with a vintage steam powered slot machine, which could be pulled to spin the reels. The gas mask just follows the post apocalyptic theme that comes with this genre. The other random circle sketches on this page was me trying to figure out a logo concept for a separate project which involves 7 levels of existence or realms. On the top right corner is a sideways drawing of a room at the Walker Art Center which was used in a Merce Cunningham dance performance, where these globular sacks were hanging down from the ceiling in a very dark lit moody room.
Each Friday at noon I scan in one new sketch or drawing from one of my many sketchbooks. Many times my sketches are ideas for larger projects that you might find on my fine art website William Hessian dot com, or as projects right here on my Bearded Bunny art blog. If you enjoy these sketches make sure to also see my Favorite 20 sketches from 2011 or go back and check out all of the sketchbook friday posts.
