As you will probably remember, on 14th February we published a blog post entitled ‘Steampunk Chronicle Reader’s Choice Awards 2014’. This blog post had three objectives: announcing that the nominations were open, sharing with you international people and projects we believe in and, last but not least, asking for your support (as this year there is a ‘Best Jewelry Designer’ category). To be honest, the results could not be better. Why am I saying this? Because 15 out of the 32 nominations we suggested have succeeded and the icing of the cake is that we are among them!
Art Donovan Design, Boston Metaphysical Society, Brumas del Alba, Diana M. Pho, Duendelirium, Factoría Goggles, El Costurero Real, El Investigador, Ithilien, Kevin Steil (aka Airship Ambassador), MADLAB, Marcus R. Gilman, Sam Van Olffen, Suna Dasi… these are some of the people and projects we are honored to support and we invite you to learn more about them.
It is your turn, let your voice be heard and choose your preferred nominees, we hope to be among them with our Machinarium Collection. For the full list of nominations click over here, the voting phase runs through 22nd April. Time to vote (and you can do it here), thank you so much for your support!

Line up: Albert Crowe (Lead Vocal, Octave Mandola, Mandolin), Amil Magpantay (Bandurria, vocal and anything else he can find), Andrew Akehurst (Piano Accordian, vocal) and Mark Jones (Bass, Drum, Guitar).

When I discovered JungShan Ink illustrations I could not help but wonder who was this talented artist. It did not took me long to find out that Jung Shan Chang is an emerging illustrator from Taiwan that blends Eastern style with Western techniques and moods. Her creations are the best proof of her virtuosity with both image editing software and the traditional Chinese ink technique.
The awesome results of the collaboration between Jung Shan Chang and the American comic artist Joe Benitez were the first works from JungShan Ink I discovered. Joe Benitez sent her some pencil sketches of Lady Mechanika and she used Chinese ink in order to finish the illustrations.
We would like to recover this British short film released in 2008. This way up is a brilliant black comedy that follows the story of two undertakers trying to deliver a body to a graveyard. As the tagline goes, ‘Laying the dead to rest has never been so much trouble’.
