This totally reminds me of Kevin J. Andersen's and Neil Peart's new book "Clockwork Angels" and Rush's companion album of the same name. That could be a vision directly from the book, with the Watchmaker's tower being the huge clock tower in the middle of the city! Very cool illustration, very nice job. (You should reach out to those guys! :) I know they've worked with Hugh Syme since the 1970's, I believe, but maybe Hugh would be open to partnering up with other artists...)

Having so much detail and patterning on the ship while still having it feel light is a tough combo. You pulled it off excellently.

I'm working with Arcana ( arcana.com ) to launch their first open call comic anthology series, Steampunk Originals. The goals of this series are two-fold. First, to create a quality anthology with diverse takes on the theme. Second, Arcana is looking to launch a full series of Steampunk-themed books within the year so they are seeking properties and creators they feel could carry their own books.

We're looking for 1-12 page full color comics which explore the Steampunk theme through art of all style/ media and stories of all tones and genre. The terms are fully non-exclusive and creators retain full rights to the characters and stories. ( If Arcana seeks to license/ purchase a property or commission additional work, those terms are negotiated directly with the creators. ) We're open to both new and reprint comics. Deadline for Volume 2 is January 14th, 2013.

Unlike most anthologies, Steampunk Original also welcomes artists, writers, and colorists to join independently then helps them pair up within the group. If you'd be interested in more info: [link]

That airship rocks.

OK now THAT's an AIRSHIP!!!

And here I was, afraid that all your baroque tech stuff had died with Weapon Zero... ^__^ Man, I so want to see you pull out all the stops, and show me how you just go WILD with your design ethic! That said, this is a strong hint of what unrestrained Joe Benitez looks like. I look forward to seeing much more work like this!

Your techno-organic, alien works are inspirational, and indescribably beautiful.

Awesome, I see that you guys at aspen are doing the axe deodorant thing so does this mean that mechanika won't be out for the next couple months?
