I had great intentions of posting about this sooner, but clearly that didn't happen.
Regardless, Bits and Bobs: A Steampunk Exhibit will be opening up this Saturday (7/18) at Mustard Seed (214 N Main St.) in Buhler, Kansas. I have the honor of being one of the many artists whose work will be on display. In addition to a visual piece, I'll also have a steampunk/sci-fi story I wrote on display, which I'm excited to share.
based on the original cover design from
when I gave the story to Matt for his birthday
earlier this year.
For those of you who aren't on Facebook, here is the event info:
The art will be on display from July 18 through October 17th
Opening ceremonies will be on July 18. We will have live music, fencing demos, a tea tasting, a fundraiser, and of course art. Also, we will have Roger Toliver Photography at the event, photographing you holding a rare Eurasian Eagle Owl!

I will be at the opening from 11 am until whenever Henry gets overstimulated, and I'll be wearing my most risque Steampunk costume ever, so that will be fun. See you there!
