Whitby Steampunk Weekend

Twice a year Whitby hosts a Steampunk weekend. Town is full of all sorts of folk dressed in all their steampunk finary. I exhibit with two good friends, Trish Shaw and Claire Ward, as In Sooth.

This is our exhibition in the Spa in Whitby, what fantastic views we have behind us. I decided to make some new work for this weekend. The weekend is all about fantastic things, weird and wonderful. So my new peices needed to be too. I decided to create new characters that fitted in with this idea. Ive been thinking about mixing human and animal, shamanistic, folkloreish. heres what i came up with.
