Finally finished this thing after nearly a month of cutting clamping, painting and cutting. As usual, I used an old computer book as the base. Colored with my steel/vinegar mixture, the cover is covered with thinned white glue coated tissue paper. The metal trim is made from sheet plastic, treated with textured paint, then a thick layer of Sophisticated Finishes rust surfacer. the rust streaks are simply orange and brown acrylic.

The inside is hollow, so it can be used as a costume prop at conventions, and will allow me to carry small objects, phone, wallet, pocket program, etc around with me.

My favorite feature is the tiny magnet I buried under the surface of the books spine to hold the key in place.

Not much to say really. My real name is Phil (If you're wondering about the username, it was pretty much the only one that wasn't already taken). I grew up in Atlanta and moved to Seattle about 15 years ago.
I've always been the creative type, building models, and doing 2D and digital art, and its only in the last year that I discovered Steampunk, and the idea of creating 3D work.
I've been a fan of Lovecrafts work for since high school, so it seemed only natural to combine the two.

I'm more than happy to do commissions, or even sell some of the pieces posted here. Just drop me an e-mail. My prices are quite reasonable.

Current Residence: South of Seattle,WA
Favourite genre of music: Just about anythign besides hip-hop, rap, and country
Favourite style of art: Fantasy
Operating System: Windows 7 ftw!
