Meet John, he's the most recent to join the Steampunk Soul rebellion. John was a prisoner of the Soul Sucker (and a personal favorite of his) for over a year. John's steampunk soul nearly withered away, but John was determined to survive. The Soul Sucker held betting races and made John participate because he knew John would win. During one of these races John just kept racing, past the finish line, past the gaurds, towards freedom from the Soul Sucker. The Soul Sucker made a terrifying screech when he realized what John was doing and flew out towards him. John raced his wheels faster than they had ever gone before, praying he could reach the edge of the Castle of Corporation. He could hear the Shoulds and Regrets pounding the earth behind him, and just when he thought the Soul Sucker would swoop down and snatch him, he reached the edge of the woods, vanishing deep in their shadows until the rebellion found him.
John is one of my favorites so far! Love his aviator hat and little goggles! He is 4 1/2" tall and is sculpted from paperclay, and vintage watch parts. Hope everyone is enjoying the Steampunk Souls stories :o) If anyone is wondering why Michael isn't in the group shot, he's been adopted and is on his way to his new home :o)) John will be available this evening in my ETSY shop.
Have a very Steampunk magical holiday everyone!!! xo Michele
I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
