The ABCs Steampunk style! 26 beautifully illustrated pages depicting everyday items turned Steampunk.

About this project

Every family needs an alphabet book. That's a given. But when I set out to find a compelling Steampunk themed ABC book, I was shocked to find there wasn't one. I've been doing steampunk art for several years in the video game industry, and now I'm on a mission to illustrate a visually compelling, fun for all ages Steampunk Alphabet book, the one I wanted to buy. 

One of my goals with this book is to make it approachable to both fans, and those unfamiliar with Steampunk. In light of that, while all of the illustrations are total Steampunk, the opening 'letter sentence' for each page is a familiar word. For example "A is for Apple." 

The idea of taking everyday ordinary things and reimagining them as Steampunk is something I'm hoping a lot of people will enjoy.

The second part of each page is a description of the object as set in the Steampunk world. This portion will be more enjoyable to older kids and adults to enjoy, while the book could be read entirely with just the 'letter sentences' for younger readers.

Along with copies of the book, here are some samples of the fantastic Steampunk gear available, with potentially more coming!

If the project is successful, I'm hoping to be able to finish the book in a pretty short time frame. Having worked as a full-time artist for 6 years now, and on close to 20 video games, I know about managing a project, setting goals and delivering on time. 

While I've been working on this book when I can, with some help from you I can get it finished, printed and in your hands. Any support you can offer is very appreciated, and please pass the word along through the social network grapevine! 

Lot's of updates to come, with new pages and progress reports. Stay tuned!
