Steampunk?!?

So after having a little root around a few sites, I stumbled onto comments of this movement, so I decided to check it out after having heard the name before....

To my surprise was actually quite takin in by what I saw....drawing elements from the Victorian Period, and from Novels such as H. G. Wells 'The Time Machine'  and on the basis of early technological advances, most of the work produced within this Fantasy/Sci-Fi sub-genre portrays history taking an alternate direction...

Anyway, I found some really cool images which stood out...but had trouble saving them, probably some copyright crap, so here's the link to a few sites I found, check them out

  1. Tomorrow at 3pm in Lecture Theatre 1, Tracy Ashmore is doing a second session on structuring arguments for academic writing and creative research; it will last an hour, giving you a bit of a breather before the life-drawing class; sorry for the short notice, but it was only confirmed at the end of last week. If you could assist me in getting word out to your classmates, I'd be very grateful. Cheers!
