Space giraffes!, robot sandwiches!, etc.

Check out: Rich Gonzales – Inconsequential Illustration.

This artist combines the best elements of steampunk and whimsy. (To me, whimsy means imagination unbound but not useless, not nonsense or Dada; or imagination useful in an aesthetic sense, but a personal one; i.e. not bound to the received aesthetics of a genre—not “steampunk,” not “fantasy” pur sang, but something entirely other. Mark Ryden comes to mind as a neo-whimsist [?] not associated with RPGs. The games children invent are whimsical, no?)

Would love to see: The Rich Gonzales version of an ammon steammonk…
