Osgood Finnegan's Airship

Here's another upcoming illustration for my web serial "The Lair of the Clockwork Book", at Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual ( [link] ).

Osgood Finnegan wouldn't be much of a steampunk era inventor if he didn't have his own airship; happily, as we see, he's got one.

Finnegan's stories-within-a-story take place in an earlier age than I most often find myself in; normally my Retropolis is chock-full of rockets and robots from an entirely different future that never was. Old Osgood, though, was one of the people who built that future, and so here we're getting a glimpse of the world as he and others were reinventing it.

I can't believe that I would leave an airship created by a fave artist unfaved.
    well problem corrected.
        I notice that you don't have much on Deviant for 2014.
            Is there a new place you are putting your art?

This year I've been working on the illustrations for my new book, so there hasn't been much to share over here. I guess I should try to fix that next year!

I love this rendition of an airship, especially the two-tone fabric and the extra "fins." Heading over to read about it now! :D

I love the details in the rigging. And the thought of cruising over my neighbors in one of my own.

I can imagine the neighbors aren't too thrilled about his invention.
