Recognize any thing?

Posted by on January 28th,2010

See the video here : Steamed or Whos art is who

Tonight it was discovered that the promotional video for Katie MacAlister’s new book “Steamed” (a steampunk romance novel now on the shelves at your local bookstore) included images by various artists who were not credited. Whoever put the video together failed to give proper recognition to the people whose art made it possible to create the video. It is up to the artists to contact the publisher and sort this out, but hopefully it can be resolved positively so that the artists can still benefit from having their work (properly credited) available to such a wide potential audience.

In the meantime, I think it’s best to credit the artists. I am including names and links for all of the ones that I recognized, but if I miss anyone, please leave their name and website in the comments.

The model in the photo of the gentleman with the clockwork arm is author G. D. Falksen. The photo is by Tarilyn Quinn. The original image can be seen here.

The background image at 0:51 is Gears and Wrought Iron by

The illustration of the city was created by Alberto Gordillo, as seen here.

The watches flashed one at a time are by the wonderful Haruo Suekichi of Japan.

These are the ones I could identify right away, but there were more images in the video so if you recognize the ones I have missed, sound off in the comments.

On the one hand, this should assert to all the artists who have had their work used in this video that they are doing a great job. The art is wonderful enough to be used in a commercial to advertise a book put out by a major publisher. But the publisher should have contacted each artist for permission. At the very, very, very least they should have credited their sources. I know a number of the artists identified here have contacted the publisher to get credited for their work, so it should all work out one way or another. It also should be noted that typically the author never really has any say in the production of advertisements like this, and so this is in no way, shape or form Katie MacAlister’s fault. She did her job and wrote a steampunk book for everyone to enjoy, and I’m certain had she known she would have insisted that the artists all receive the recognition due their work. But the publishing company, which was responsible for the video’s creation, should have known better. Whoever was delegated to for making the video should be in hot water right now.

Penny Dreadful productions is an Atlanta based company specializing in props, sets, costumes, and more for film, television, conventions, and private commissions.

Steampunk takes over MTV

Posted by on October 22nd,2008

GD Click to see the MTVs take on Steampunk Infiltrates The Mainstream If there wasn’t already enough proof that the steampunk trend is gaining widespread attention, MTV has joined other media and entertainment institutions in attempting to cover it. MTV’s article can be found online, along with short films of interviews, a music video by Dr. Steel, and a performance by Abney Park. People interviewed include Tom Wileford of Brute Force Leather, authors G. D. Falksen and Cathrynne M. Valente, Joshua Pfeiffer of Vernian Process, the members of Abney Park,My self Evelyn a Brass Goggles contributor , various attendees of Salon Convention,DOV and even Voltaire representing the goth community. The coverage is generally very good, and the MTV researchers clearly listened to what their interviewees were telling them. A fair amount of effort is paid to connecting steampunk with modern film and culture, but that is only to be expected given that MTV is trying to make the subject accessible to its viewers. The film segment’s host, John Norris, makes a fantastic attempt at “dressing the part,” and even gets into the spirit of the trend. The coverage includes movies, music, and fashion. The famous and talented Kit Stølen is referenced for his iconic role in steampunk fashion.’s steampunk-themed sellers are referenced, as are Retroscope Fashions and RockLove Jewelry.
