Celebration Station! Greg Chapman

Day 11

Steampunk Indian
By Greg Chapman

Steampunk art and literature is filled with images of white, European people in Victorian garb and when I was asked to create something, I thought what about an American Indian? The tribes adopted the weapons of the white man, so why not their antique technology? Immediately the image of a Chief came to mind adorned with a very unique headpiece. I chose to draw it on Vidalon paper with sanguine inks to give it that authentic old world feel - as if a traveling artist had come across this warrior and couldn't resist the urge to capture him on paper.
