So now that Myke and I are in the Cincinnati area we’ve been asked to help out a bit more with the Steampunk Symposium, a steampunk themed convention that happens every April. I’ve been working on the con art and as a result of that Bly was created. Oh I adore the heck out of her. Con organizer Al Fox requested there be an automaton somewhere in the promotional flyer and I got way into her. We decided to name her after a true steampunk of her day Nellie Bly. These are her first drafts. I need to scan and color her.
