The Steampunk World

Being the continued explorations of a living steampunk.

The steampunk world is all around us, lying just out of sight, in a continuous thread of steampunk builders and culture that extends from the Victorian era to the present. You'll find no science fiction here: This is real life steampunk.

Through a fortuitous coincidence, I've met a guy at the Butler Street Foundry who wants more creativity involved with his shop. We've worked out a bartering arrangement- he's teaching me about blacksmithing and in exchange I help him with special projects (a public access show is in the works, and I've restored some of his old furniture, stuff like that). Sorta like an "artist in residence" except I don't reside. He loves the wacky bikes me and Marty make.

Butler Street is an historic Chicago institution. Check out some pictures:
