There is a kind of Steampunk fever spreading little by little over France. Now and then, clockwork designs, XIXth century flavoured ads, gears can be seen on TV, posters or magazines. I was browsing recently one of my favourite literature leaflet when I fell on Sam Van Olffen’s pictures. This artist is a young graphic sampler, as he likes to call himself, from Montpellier (South of France) who really deserves to be known among the Steampunk community. The artwork speaks for itself. He worked for the music industry, publishing houses and also did the design of an retro-future exhibition. I personally enjoy that biomechanical Napoleon !
